The Lynbrook High School Key Club started the school year off strong with its annual popcorn fundraiser. In four days, from Sept. 27 to Oct. 1, club members managed to raise a grand total of $46,528.
The Key Club’s DoubleGood fundraiser has raised more than $100,000 since its start three years ago. This year, 50 percent of the funds raised went to went to the Dr. Barabrino Scholarship Fund, L.I. Coalition for the Homeless, Project9Line, SCOPE, SCO Family of Services, Rose Brucia Educational Foundation, Global Giving Tree, The Inn, Kiwanis Children's Fund, Kiwanis Pediatric Trauma Center, Operation Smiles, and the Leadership Training Conference for Key Club.
On top of encouraging new and returning members to buy and sell popcorn, club members held mini competitions to offer prizes. Over 100 members participated individually or in pairs and raised a wide range each, with the top four supporters including Devin Ryan, Kennett Curtis, Addison Cooper and Damon Lanzello. The LHS Key Club was excited to start the year strong and is looking forward to continuing its service success in the future with upcoming popcorn fundraisers, blood drives, and more.
