Centennial High School FBLA in Oregon continues to grow in their fundraising efforts! Previously, they won the FBLA National Community Service Project with their efforts for the March of Dimes. This year, they used a variety of fundraising approaches to raise a mile of dimes – $11,333 to be exact, the most they have ever raised! Their most creative fundraiser was “Dancing with the Staff” where staff and students were paired in a dancing competition. They also raised money in the school, and held other events such as Bunco for Babies.

What were this team’s keys to success? Fun! Creativity! And a strong understanding of the cause. Led by a dedicated, outstanding FBLA adviser & teacher at the school, these students kept up their efforts all year to surpass their goal. Congrats to Adriann and all the students for their amazing work!

The FBLA also hosted a school assembly once they raised a mile of dimes, recognizing their team and congratulating the entire school on their efforts. The winning dance due performed, and they had a visual representation of dimes with $90 of dimes representing the $11,333 they raised as you can see in the photo.

For more on their success, check out their press coverage. Check out their Facebook page with Dancing with the Staff video & photos. And watch the phenomenal March of Dimes video they made for their school.
