Marketing students have successful Valentine’s Day Sale

With Valentine’s Day long gone, Flushing High School offered a fundraiser that supported DECA, while also encouraging students to send something sweet to their valentine. Whether it was a friend or future significant other, this program was sure to spark interest. I spoke with Mr. Sirle about projected rose sales. His rough estimate was about 380 roses.

According to last year’s numbers, this was 25-30% higher.
Additionally, 68 Crushes were sold, which was a little less than last year, and 64 bears (combos included), were sent off to giddy teenagers, which was slightly more than last year. Here’s a pie chart to keep those numbers straight:
