The Florida Chapter has an annual rose sale, which is one of our biggest fundraisers! Our fundraiser chair, Gernide Zamor, did an excellent job planning everything out to the T! An order form is e-mailed to the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences faculty listserv as well as the Florida chapter's AZ listserv and placed in the school newspaper a week before the big day. We order over 500 roses in red, white, and pink colors to fulfill our pre-sales and to sell individually on campus on Valentine's Day. This is a huge event consisting of 3 separate days since it takes time to prep the roses (de-thorn, clip the ends, and separate by color), store in a walk-in cooler, bundle the roses according to pre-sale orders, deliver the orders on campus on Valentine's day, and table on campus selling any remaining roses. This benefits the college by giving an alternative to expensive florists while supporting its own honors fraternity! We look forward to spreading a little joy during this event every spring!
