What can you do with 4,000 tulips? Fight cancer, according to a Relay for Life group in the Grand Forks area.

Tulip Days were held this week at Altru Cancer Center. Every year the Altru Cancer Center sells flowers as a fundraiser for the Greater Grand Forks Relay for Life. This year, the group chose to sell tulips.

Altru Cancer Center's LeAnne Kilzer, who coordinates the event, said they originally ordered 300 bunches of tulips, or 3,000 tulips, but the fundraiser ran out of flowers Wednesday. With the help of All Seasons Garden Center, they were to gather 100 more bunches to sell Thursday. The extra tulips were all sold Thursday before the event ended.
