Sunflowers for Wishes

WTNH– Community & Media Relations Manager Michael Dominick from Make-A-Wish Connecticut and Wish Kid Cora Guerin talk about the 11th Annual Sunflowers for Wishes.

The 11th Annual “Sunflowers for Wishes” will take place from July 19th through July 27th this year at Buttonwood Farms in Griswold CT, from 10AM – Dusk.

Over 400,000 sunflowers will be in bloom at the farm. You can take a hayride through the fields as well as purchase sunflower bouquets and other sunflower-themed items. 100% of the proceeds from hayrides, flower bouquets and sunflower-themed items will benefit Make-A-Wish Connecticut.

Make-A-Wish Connecticut grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
