Hicks Nurseries Supports Breast Cancer Education through Meghan’s Pansies Breast Cancer Fund For the 12th year, Hicks Nurseries in Westbury is raising money for the Meghan’s Pansies Breast Cancer Fund. From now until the end of April, for each specially marked pansy six-pack that is sold, 15¢ will be donated to the fund.
Meghan's Pansies, which is administered by the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program, educates young women and men about breast cancer. Meghan’s Pansies is a special fund established in memory of Meghan Kenny Halloran, a Garden City resident who succumbed to breast cancer at age 31.
Hicks Nurseries, Long Island’s oldest garden nursery (established by the Hicks family in 1853), is located at 100 Jericho Turnpike in Westbury;516-334-0066; www.hicksnurseries.com.
The nursery is handicap accessible throughout. For information about the fund, call the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline and Support Program at 800-877-8077.
