Club hosts burrito sale

Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) broke the conventions of traditional bake sales to raise money. On May 22, the club hosted its first Moe’s burrito sale after school. Profits, however did not match the expectations of club members.

The FBLA has hosted many sales in the past including sales of White Castle burgers and bumper stickers. Their recent bumper sticker campaign sold 125 bumper stickers and made approximately $500 in profit.

“We decided to sell burritos because people in Port are obsessed with Moe’s for some strange reason,” said executive board member sophomore Noah White.

The owner of the southwestern restaurant chain had visited the club previously to speak about his business. Using this connection, the FBLA ordered discounted chicken burritos from Moe’s and sold them to students in the lobby after school.

The club usually donates the money that it earns to organizations such as Wounded Warriors, Jack’s Run, and the Community Chest. The FBLA lost about fifty dollars in profit from the burrito sale due to low sales.

Despite their relatively unsuccessful fundraising attempt, the students that purchased burritos greatly enjoyed them.

“The burrito sale was really clever, actually, and I didn’t have to go and buy it,” said sophomore Annie Kim. “I am also more of a food person than a dessert person, so it was a nice change to the average bake sales.”
