Mother’s Day at Buttonwood Farm

If it’s Mother’s Day, then Buttonwood Farm in Griswold is always thinking of mothers and the Terri Brodeur Foundation.

This year, as they have for the past several years, the folks at Buttonwood hosted a Mother’s Day Sundae Fundraiser at their ice cream stand and made a $3,000 donation to the foundation to help fund breast cancer research.

“With the beautiful weather, and the pandemic finally easing up, we were able to have a good turnout,” Kim Button, vice president of Buttonwood, said in a note to the foundation that included a $3,000 check. The farm donated to TBF for every sundae it sold on May 9, 2021.

Kate Davis, the foundation’s operations director who went to the sundae social with her sister and their mother, said the lines were long and the ice cream delicious.

In 2019, the farm collected nearly $900 from the event, matched it, and made a $1,780 donation. Last year, despite the pandemic, the farm managed to make a $1,000 donation.

The foundation is grateful to Buttonwood and all other local businesses that make a special effort to help us in our mission to raise money for breast cancer research.
