CFL stars promote Never Alone rose at Expo

October 20, 2014  By Landscape Ontario

Oct. 20, 2014, Toronto — CFL Hall of Famers Matt Dunigan and Michael ‘Pinball’ Clemons are coming to Landscape Ontario’s Garden & Floral Expo to talk about the Never Alone Foundation and the new Never Alone rose.

Meet them at the Congress Centre on Oct. 22 and 23.

Never Alone is a cause embraced by the CFL alumni and the horticulture industry, assuring that Canadians fighting cancer, as well as their families, are never alone.


The Never Alone rose is a product of Canada’s famous hardy rose breeding program. The Never Alone Foundation, the CFL Alumni Association and the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association selected it as a living symbol of the compassion that Never Alone inspires.


It will be available at garden centres across Canada in the spring of 2015.

• Fellow Hall of Famer Pinball Clemons will appear at the Bakker booth on Thursday, Oct. 23 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
