Buy your tickets now for Aug. 8 BSFO soul food fest

If summertime makes your mouth water for BBQ chicken and ribs, look no further than BSFO’s Soul Food Lunch, coming Wednesday, Aug. 8, to UCOP’s Franklin building.

The Black Staff and Faculty Organization is sponsoring the event to raise money for its Scholarship Fund. At $20 per plate, lunches will be sold in advance, then served between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Aug. 8 in Franklin’s Lobby 1 Conference Room.

Each plate includes a choice of BBQ chicken or pork ribs, plus three sides, dessert and a beverage. Some of the dishes will be home-cooked and others provided by caterers. To place your order, complete the order form, indicating your choice of chicken or ribs, and submit it with your payment to the event contacts (see bottom of form) no later than Wednesday, Aug. 1.

You may also purchase tickets and place orders until Aug. 1 in the Franklin lobby from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. BSFO accepts cash or checks. (Please make your check payable to the Black Staff and Faculty Organization.)

All proceeds go to the BSFO Scholarship Fund to support five scholarships of $1,000 each for Oakland high school seniors planning to attend a UC campus this fall. BSFO is working with Berkeley’s Center for Education Partnerships to identify the students.
