Blooming Baskets Fundraiser supporting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation has been selected as the May recipient for Eriksen Chevrolet’s Three Degree Guarantee.
The Blooming Baskets Fundraiser will receive $20 from Eriksen Chevrolet for each day of the month that the actual temperature is within three degrees of the high temperature forecasted. Every night Storm Team 8 will predict the next day’s high temperature. The forecast temperatures are compared to the actual temperatures recorded by the National Weather Service.
Blooming Basket is a sale held the day before Mother’s Day (Saturday, May 11) at Advance Auto Parts in Rock Island, Illinois. Items for sale include hanging baskets, Amish-made sweet rolls and homemade dog treats. Proceeds from the Blooming Basket Fundraiser will support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), which leads the fight against type 1 diabetes by funding research, advocating for government backing and expanded access to treatment and providing a support network for millions of people around the world impacted by T1D.
