Watertown is celebrating Yellow Rose Week

WATERTOWN, S.D.(KXLG)- Yellow Rose Week is this week through June 9th, and the Prairie Lakes Healthcare Foundation is busy selling roses to raise funds where the proceeds support the Suzanne Jacobsen Memorial Fund.

Lisa Dahl, Foundation Director, explains more.

After Jacobsen passed in 1998, the family of Suzanne wanted to start this fund to help anyone that is facing a life-threatening illness with some financial need.

Since its inception, the fund has provided over $495,000 through 859 grants.  The money is used to help those diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses with their everyday bills.

There are different ways to support Yellow Rose Week.  You can purchase a Yellow Rose Decal for $10, a Yellow Rose Yard Sign for $20, and an individual Yellow Rose for $5, or you can buy different bouquets.
