Watanabe Floral will salute mothers at Kapi'olani Medical Center for Women & Children by presenting each of them with a fresh rose this Sunday, May 9. Whether a brand new mom or a grandmother many times over, Watanabe will present roses to hundreds of mothers who find themselves at Kapi'olani on Mother's Day.

The gift of flowers is part of Watanabe's ongoing support of the hospital through the Kapi'olani Children's Miracle Network. As part of the Children's Miracle Network "Miracle Month of May," Watanabe Floral is also donating a percentage of all floral sales from Saturday, May 8 in anticipation of Mother's Day.

Along with several other businesses statewide including Costco, Walmart and Sam's Club, Watanabe is also selling Miracle Balloons all month long with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the Kapi'olani Children's Miracle Network in support of the Kapi'olani Medical Center for Women & Children.
