A member of Fashion for the Cure advertises baked goods. Profits from this fundraiser and others go to the Dragonfly Foundation. This charity focuses on helping children diagnosed with cancer.

On Sat. Sept. 27, Fashion for the Cure Club sold cookies and brownies at the football game against Oak Hills. The club raises money for the Dragonfly Foundation and works toward their biggest fundraiser, a spring fashion show.

“The Dragonfly Foundation is a local charity that helps improve the quality of life for kids with cancer,” senior Julia Mattis said.

The night of the bake sale was a crowded football game deemed ‘Neon Night.’  Although the game was packed with brightly-clad fans, the Fashion for the Cure members faced some obstacles in selling their baked goods.

“No one was allowed to loiter in the area where we were selling,” Mattis said.

To sell more cookies, some members became mobile.  FFTC sellers could be seen walking through the stands and around the concession stand like vendors at Cincinnati Reds baseball games.   They carried baskets full of cookies and brownies with signs advertising their product.

“We ended up selling out by the end of the first half,” Mattis said.
