(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – The LRHS Key Club will sell balloons and flowers for Valentine’s Day in the lunchroom from Feb. 1-8. All items are planned to be delivered during third period on Feb. 14.
“My hope for this fundraiser is to raise enough money to pay for 1/3 or more of the District Convention (DCON) prices,” said Key Club president Erika Rojas, junior.
Balloons will cost $2.50 and single flowers will be $2.00, although bouquets of half a dozen and a dozen flowers will also be sold.
“We’ve never done a fundraiser like this but we are very hopeful that it will be successful,” Rojas said.
Freshman Jenna Hernandez is eagerly offering up her efforts to help sell flowers and balloons, “I’m very excited to go to the conference. It’s being held in Orlando and in all the years that I’ve been in Florida I have never been to Orlando.”
Funds raised will help cover the cost of the annual Key Club district conference. The Lakewood Ranch High School chapter plans on attending from March 30, 2017 through April 2, 2017 headed by their current president Erika Rojas, junior. The event features 2000 attendees sharpening their skills in the opening ceremony, various workshops, preparing speeches and electing a district board, receiving scholarships, and preparing to audition for a talent show.
