Cancer Society fundraising

Students in the Professional Sales class at Central Lakes College raised money for the American Cancer Society through a learning experience with the Daffodil Days campaign. Twenty-two new businesses and their employees purchased $1,495 worth of assorted daffodil products. This figure represented 19 percent of the $7,890 in total presales for the area. Students planned and carried out the fundraiser by selling Daffodil Grams for $1 each. For every $25 in Daffodil Grams sold a collector bear is given to children diagnosed with cancer in Crow Wing County. The students raised $525. In addition, Central Lakes College employees purchased $430 of assorted daffodil products. The total of $955 broke the previous record of $800 set last year. Students participating were Dhruv Patel, Emily Main, Demetria Squires, Ashlee Foley, Dan McFarland, Larry Schmidtbauer, Jim Horak, Levi Christianson, Lisa Meacham, Dawn Hanson, Abby Goodew, Kelly Pohl, Angellica Holt, Rochelle Stinar, Blanca Fellman, Cody Carlson, Jennifer Tourville, Deb Halverson, Jerry Gravening, Travis Chaput, Darren Ottem, Kasey Kruchten, and Lawson Starr. Pat Swarthout is the instructor.
