The International Food Sample Festival is coming by! Our theme this year is boozy cupcakes! We need a few good members to help us throw a baking party the day before and a few to volunteer and help distribute our food samples at our table.
Baking day is July 28th, and the Festival happens on Wednesday, July 29th. We need to set up at 11:00 AM, start serving from 11:30 to 1:30, then clean up ending no later than 2:00. Are you in?
Ticket pricing will be $10 for affinity
group members and $12 for no-affinity group members. Ticket sales will begin on October 2nd through 7th. We need volunteers to sell tickets on the last day (Oct 7th) and we also need volunteers to enforce wristbands at the event. Activity ideas are also welcome. Don’t forget to save the date!
This event is currently being organized by the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) to promote socialization and networking among all groups. The date is set for October 8th from 4 to 6 pm at the outdoor picnic area by the cafeteria. Sodexo will cater a variety of BBQ food. Music DJ will be provided by Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE).
Five tickets for $5 or ten tickets for $10 (One ticket redeemable for one sample serving). These tickets on special member pricing will remain on sale only through August 6th. Our table will feature Italian cuisine samples from an LGBT Owned catering business to include Bruschetta, Italian Meatballs, De-constructed Stuffed Mushrooms, Prosciutto Onion Gorgonzola and Stuffed Campari Tomatoes. Other offerings include Chicken Bririyani and Falafel; Samosas and Korean Dumplings; Mini Beef Patties and Jerk Chicken; Persian Chicken Kabobs; Eggplant Salad; Chicken Gumbo; Lemon Ricotta Kale Dip; Ethiopian Minchetabsh; Chocolate Dipping Station; Roasted Chicken and more! Don’t miss a great deal, contact Larry Sternbane and Michael Tzeng to get your half price tickets before they’re gone!
The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) would like to collaborate with the other affinity groups at the PTO in organizing a barbecue. The barbecue would be open to all of the participating affinity groups members and would serve to celebrate the end of the fiscal year. Mid-October was the time frame that we thought would be ideal for the event but, depending on the participants, the time frame can be changed. Are you interested in participating?
