GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. For the first time this holiday season, the Grand Junction Symphony is helping residents get into the spirit by selling poinsettias. Monday was the first day that people could pick up their poinsettias at the symphony's new office located on Main Street.
Many people have put in a reservation for their poinsettia but even if you haven't reserved a poinsettia you can still purchase one for $20 with proceeds going towards helping the symphony.
"Without funding for the symphony we wouldn't exist, we're a non-profit organization so we're not out making money on certain things. so we ask the public a lot for donations and different things like that and this is just another way that people can support us. We're very grateful to the community. We've been here for 35 years and it's just something else we want to do," Jeremy Herigstad, marketing director, Grand Junction Symphony.
The symphony has their holiday concert "Tis the Season" coming up on Saturday, December 14th at 7:30 p.m. The concert will be held at the Grand Junction High School auditorium. Tickets range in price from $17 to $30.
