LRHS chorus members are selling steel tumblers to raise money for the program.

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – Every year, LRHS chorus provides the opportunity for members to go to Chicago and Disney World.

This means fundraisers so students can raise money for their trips. This year, the students are selling steel tumblers to family and friends.

Chorus manager Kaitlyn Proulx, senior, said, “It is important that people sell as many steel tumblers as they can, because the Disney trip is very expensive for just the school to pay for.”

The money received from the steel tumblers will also go towards both the school and music equipment.

LRHS chorus teacher Giselle Panagiotakis stated, “The steel tumblers aren’t just cups, they can keep drinks cold for long periods of time, and we are selling them for a low price of $25. Usually, these cups would be more expensive.”

Junior Kelsey Davies has been a chorus student since her freshman year. Davis is hoping to raise as much money as she can for the trips.

“I was able to sell the tumblers to so many people,” Davies said. “People love the cups, and this is my favorite thing I’ve sold in chorus. I was never able to get that much money the previous years.”

Panagiotakis said, “I hope the following years we are able raise as much money as we raised so far this year.  No amount of money is too much!”

Chorus will be selling tumblers for the next few weeks in the cafeteria. They will be sold for $25 each. For more information, contact Panagiotakis in room 227.
