Christmas produce. Holiday palm trees. Children from RCMA draw colorful Christmas scenes that are converted into holiday greeting cards for sale in an annual fundraiser.

This project began in 1998 at the suggestion and direction of A. Duda & Sons, a grower based in Oviedo. Every year since then, Duda has donated countless hours and expertise in organizing the fund-raiser and contributing financially to its success. The fund-raiser has been extremely popular with Florida growers as well as the general public.
As part of the effort, RCMA also relies on "Print Angels" to contribute $500 each to help offset printing costs. Nineteen companies are Print Angels. Additionally, Florida's Natural Growers Foundation contributed a $3,000 grant.
The brochure featuring annual designs is published early fall. The deadline to order exclusive cards is Dec. 15th to ensure delivery before Christmas.
