Thank you to Santa Barbara’s own Westerlay Orchids for successfully raising over $90,000 in funds for the Breast Cancer Resource Center of Santa Barbara with the sale of their beautiful Pink Diamond Orchid since 2015.

This October 2020, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Westerlay Orchids continues a long-standing tradition of providing financial support to the BCRC, demonstrating its ongoing commitment to community. 

“When you witness the important role that organizations like the Cancer Resource Center hold in our community, it’s so easy to get behind their cause,” explains Westerlay Owner and President Toine Overgaag, “It makes me and all of our staff proud to harness our product for the benefit of others.” The shop annually dedicates a portion of its sales of the propiotory Pink Diamond Orchid to benefit the center and the many men and women who rely on its care. In past years, Westerlay has also chosen the BCRC as its Breast Cancer Awareness Month beneficiary.

“BCRC is truly grateful to be recognized and supported by the Overgaag Family and Westerlay Orchids,” states Silvana Kelly, Executive Director of Breast Cancer Resource Center.  “The funds will provide for free essential services to benefit women coping with breast cancer in our community. It takes a community of supporters to keep our doors open.  BCRC is especially grateful for the support we have received for several years from Westerlay Orchids thru the sale of their unique Pink Diamond Orchid – a total of over $90K.

Westerlay Orchids believes that their work “does not start and stop at the greenhouse door,” but is largely a product of the strong community in which they have been privileged to work for three generations.
