One coupon may be used for multiple ticket purchases which means only one coupon is needed per family. As in past years, coupons can only be used in person at the Overture Center Box Office.

Poinsettia Sale Initial Deadline Approaching
Electronic ordering via the links on our website. (Paper order forms still available!)

Plants are available until our stock is sold out but our initial deadline for submitting orders is November 15 so Felly's has time to prepare the orders for our initial delivery/pick up dates. Please read through the information sheet before you begin selling and please contact the MYC office with any questions you may have.

Consider contacting your church, your office, your neighbors, favorite restaurant, hotel, hair salon, etc. Ordering is easy and we can be flexible with delivery dates--please don't hesitate to ask questions!

December coffee orders are due Monday, December 5 and will be ready for pick up (at the MYC office) on December 9. The next opportunity to order will be in February.
