This Fourth of July had a group of students from Bonanza High School working long hours.

Since June 28, they’ve been operating a fireworks stand on the southeast corner of Rainbow Boulevard and Tropicana Avenue.

The students are members of the Bangles cheerleading team, and they’re working to raise $2,000.

“Cheer is very expensive, so we have to do a lot of fundraisers to get money for competitions, uniforms, and game day,” says Briana Brown.

It’s the first year they’ve raised money by selling fireworks. The group paid $1,600 to secure rights to the location and the inventory.

After repaying startup costs the group pockets 50-percent of each sale.
