Flea-market fund-raiser set for Saturday

The school’s front parking will be transformed into a flea market/garage sale Saturday morning in the latest fund-raising project for Prom.

Interested sellers can participate in two ways: They can pay $15 to purchase a spot to sell their own items and keep all the profits or they can donate items to the Junior Class whose members will sell them and put the money toward Prom. There will be food, water and candy for sale as well.

Jenna Winter, President of Junior Class, said she thinks this fundraiser will be beneficial in multiple ways.

“It’s going to kill two birds with one stone,” Winter said. “Everything that isn’t sold will be donated to charity.”

Set-up will begin at 7:30 a.m. and the sale opens to the public at 8 a.m. Participants can park in the student and teacher parking lots and walk over to the front of the school.

Much advertising for this event has and will be put into place in an attempt to maximum profits as Prom is, price-wise, like a “mini-wedding,” according to Winter.

“There will be sign-holders on Babcock during the event,” Winter said. “ [Susan] Woyshner, our class sponsor also bought an ad in the Florida Today newspaper.
