Irises for Hope® to benefit vital Pittsburgh Mercy Health System programs and services
March through April 2014
Winter got you down? Could you use a touch of spring? Brighten your day – or someone else’s – by participating in Irises for Hope®, a Pittsburgh Mercy Health System (PMHS) fundraising event to benefit vital services and programs that we provide to the community.
Irises for Hope® raises awareness of mental illness by using the irises depicted in Vincent Van Gogh’s masterpiece Irises which he painted while institutionalized as a result of mental illness. By using the beauty of this flower to represent mental illness awareness, we hope to reduce the stigma that is so often associated with this treatable health condition by providing information and education.
Irises will be sold in bunches of 10 for $15 each.
The sale of the irises will begin in March, with delivery scheduled to participating businesses, groups, and organizations in early April.
If your company or organization misses participating in Daffodil Days, you won’t want to miss Irises for Hope®.
