(HawaiiNewsNow) - Residents of Honolulu will have the unique opportunity to meet each other and develop new friendships when Beretania Florist hosts the 18th annual FTD® Good Neighbor Day® event on Wednesday, September 5, 2012. Beginning at 7am, Beretania Florist at 1293 S Beretania Street will give away 6000 Roses in bunches of a dozen, absolutely FREE to anyone who visits the shop, while supplies last.
However, there is one catch. Howard and June Nakamoto, the owners of Beretania Florist asks that anyone who picks up a dozen free Roses will be asked to keep one of the Roses for themselves and give the others away to 11 different people - spreading goodwill and friendship in the community.
"We hope that the people of Honolulu will be able to get acquainted with new people or will renew an old friendship during FTD Good Neighbor Day," states Howard Nakamoto. "We hope to help create a friendlier, more caring and compassionate world, starting right here in Honolulu."
Beretania Florist is also partnering with the Hawaii Foodbank and ask people bring in a canned good in exchange for the FREE bunch of Roses. It is Beretania Florist's way of helping out with the problem of hunger In our community.
FTD Good Neighbor Day is being celebrated for the 18th year throughout the United States and Canada at participating FTD floral shops as a day of celebrating goodwill toward all people. It is expected that hundreds of FTD Florists in North America will participate in this year's FTD Good Neighbor Day event, giving away millions of free flowers.
