As you may know, I am the advisor to the Council for Social Entrepreneurs. This club studies and attempts to assist in tackling social issues in the local and global community. For the fifth year, the Council is sponsoring the “Hunger Banquet” and we are hopeful that you will join us on Thursday, November 17 at 5 pm for “dinner” at the Vereschagin Alumni House. The tickets are $5 and 100% of proceeds raised will go to Second Harvest Food Bank of San Joaquin and Stanislaus Counties to help fight hunger in the area.
For every dollar raised, Second Harvest is able to provide $5 worth of food.
Banquet speakers include student group Soul Speaks, Boggs Track Community Garden Director Jamil Burns and the Walter Robb Garden Director Patti Gray.
Additionally, the first 100 people to arrive that evening will be given a T-shirt to remember the event. Each attendee will also have dinner via a lottery system; one may have a “high income”/first world meal (three courses served), a “middle income”/second world meal (family style meal), or a “low income”/developing world meal (rice and beans). This is an experiential learning/fun evening with speakers (discussing world food issues), music, and food.
Please consider supporting this worthy cause!
Tickets are only $5. Ways to purchase your ticket:
- Council will be tabling outside the DeRosa University Center on November 11, 14 and 15th from 11-1pm
- Guests may also buy tickets at the Alumni House on the night of the event

Please feel free to contact me 209.946.2635 or Martin Pham 209.753.9706 if you have any questions regarding the event or wish to purchase tickets.
Thanks for your support,
