RADFORD, Va (WDBJ7) Radford High School students are using a popular prom tradition to raise funds for people battling cancer.
The organization Students vs. Cancer sold and created corsages and boutonnieres to sell to students before Saturday's prom.
Each flower pair has special ribbons on them to represent a certain type of cancer or someone close to the students who battled cancer.
The pairs were each sold for $20, with a high profit margin all going to the organization.
Haley O'Brien, a senior at RHS and member of Students vs. Cancer, said, "We had about 35 pairs that we had to make and that cost about $250. So our profit all went to Students vs. Cancer, it didn't go to anything else, was about $400."
Each special corsage and boutonniere pair will be announced and honored at the start of prom Saturday night at Radford University.
