Using chocolate roses to send off seniors & raise club funds.

What problem was solved:

Lambert Key Club in Georgia needed to raise money for various projects, including the Georgia Sheriffs’ Youth Homes and The Eliminate Project.

What was done:

Each year, Lambert Key Club holds a fundraising event called Kiss A Senior Goodbye. Members purchase bags of Hershey Kiss and meet at their advisor’s home to begin construction.

The  “roses” are made from Hershey Kisses: Two candies are placed together and wrapped in foil to form a single rose. Green wire and matching masking tape form the stem. Twelve “roses” equal a bouquet, which teachers, advisors, parents and friends can buy for a soon-to-graduate senior.

“This event always fosters a welcome environment; genuine conversations and relationships are easily formed.” -Christina Lee

Two years ago, Key Club members sold 1,917 roses to raise $1,614.

Supplies needed:

  • Hershey Kisses
  • Square aluminum tin-foil paper
  • Green wire
  • Scissors
  • Green masking tape
