The Storiole’s new slush-a-thon is a promotional event to raise money for the store. Senior Storiole staffer Alex Riley said they will be selling slushies through Feb. 28. 

“For the store, we were put into groups and it’s kind of like a competition to see who could sell the most stuff during the week,” Riley said. “We figured everyone likes slushies and it’s our most popular item, so we based our theme around that.”

Riley said for students who purchase the most amount of slushies through the week of Feb. 24-28, they will receive a prize.   

“We want as many people to come in as we can because whoever buys the most slushies throughout the week gets a big 32-ounce cup and $1 refills for the rest of the year,” Riley said. 

Sophomore Semona Robel said although she understands the financial aspect of the event, she believes purchasing a high amount of slushies is bad for students’ health. 

“Drinking an insane amount of slushies is kind of unhealthy, you know, endorsing that type of thing,” Robel said. “I get they are trying to make money, but it’s really unhealthy.”

Senior Storiole staffer Aaron Ellingson said he is looking forward to the future of the Storiole. 

“We’re not really sure what the future holds for this (event). This is the fourth group that has done a promotional thing like this,” Ellingson said.  

We want as many people to come in as we can because whoever buys the most slushies throughout the week gets a big 32-ounce cup and $1 refills for the rest of the year.”

Robel said she would appreciate it if the Storiole also would host events based on Park pride merchandise, as it can further help increase school spirit among students. 

“Maybe (by selling) more Park pride stuff, so that there can be more Park pride in this school,” Robel said. 

The Storiole will be hosting the slush-a-thon during all lunches Feb. 24-28.
