Honolulu Community College students will be having their 8th annual “forever rose” sale at HCC this Friday.
The roses are crafted by students of the sheet metal program at HCC and proceeds from the sale will go towards funding the final projects for their program.
The sale of the roses has increased in popularity since it first began in 2006. This year the sale will feature hand made galvanized roses for $5 and copper roses at $15.
The sale of the roses starts 9:30am on Friday the 14th and will continue until they sell out.
Because of their popularity in previous years, customers will be limited to four sheet metal roses and one copper rose per person.
“I showed up last year at 7:30 and people were already lined up.” said Danny Aiu, sheet metal program instructor.
Last year the students made and sold 600 of their forever roses but this year they are running behind schedule.
The students hope to sell at least 450 roses to cover materials and fund their final projects, and if past sales are any indication, they shouldn’t have any problem reaching that goal
