Add a dash of class to the holidays: Order a poinsettia from the Satellites Auxiliary.
The poinsettias range in price from $5 to $15 and are available in a variety of colors, including red, white, pink, and blue with gold. The plants vary in size from 4.5 inches to 7.5 inches and by the number of blooms.
“Our primary purpose is to provide simple décor and elegance for the holiday season for our campuses and homes,” Lynn Brand, president of the Satellites, said. “We keep your costs quite low, and the small amount of profits benefit our scholarships for the College of Medicine and Life Sciences, the College of Nursing, and the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences.”
Orders will be available for pickup on Main Campus Thursday, Dec. 1, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Rocket Hall Lobby. The pickup date for Health Science Campus is Tuesday, Dec. 6, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Four Seasons Bistro. For pickup, all poinsettias will be foiled and sleeved.
Payment options for the poinsettias include checks (payable to Satellites of UT Medical Center), cash, departmental requisition for Main Campus and payroll deduction for Health Science Campus. Payment is due at the time of pickup.
The Satellites Auxiliary is a group designed to promote education, research and service programs; provide support of patient programs in accordance with the needs and approval of administration; conduct fundraising events; and provide volunteer services.
