Rose and Bake sale benefits the Business Club
Nick “Chico” Hernandez
The Business Club, in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, held their annual sale of roses and added in baked goods this year. The bake sale took place Feb. 10 and 11, from 10 am to 4 pm and raised $565.17.
The President of the Business Club, Justin Comer, said the money will be used for, “future charitable events for the club,” and that they had “always done a rose sale, but just started selling baked goods”.
Alejandro Gonzalez, a new member of the Business Club, said, “Sales are doing well. We’ve had great team going on out here.”
In addition to charitable events, the Business Club will be using some of the funds to fuel Countdown to Career.
The starting prices for the roses were $3 for one, $5 for two, and $25 for a dozen. The price soon dropped as the Business Club neared 4 pm on Thursday. At the end, roses went for $2 for one, $3 for two, and $15 for a dozen. The same thing happened with the baked goods, some dropping from $1 to a quarter.
Zach Smith, Treasurer for the Business Club, said, “We all worked in a group mentality to get this done. It turned out good, I think.”
