March 17, 2005 -- To allow more deserving students a chance at a college education, the Office of University Development at Arkansas State University is hosting “RED” beans and rice, a lunch on April 1, 2005, to benefit the General Academic Scholarship Fund.
“A strong general
scholarship fund is critical in keeping with the mission of the ASU
Foundation,” said Steve Watkins, ASU director of Development. “This fund
is a resource for a select group of outstanding students who need help and
don’t have it. We don’t want to be in a position to have their needs go
unfulfilled and their dreams unrealized.”
Tickets are $5 in advance and may be purchased by calling University Development at (870) 972-3940, or by visiting the office in Room 103 of the Administration Building. Tickets will be $6 the day of the event, which will be held at the ASU pavilion.
Additionally, tickets will be sold around campus on the following days at the listed locations:
March 23 9 a.m. to noon Lobby of the Administration Building
March 24 9 a.m. to noon Lobby of the Dean B. Ellis Library
March 25 9 a.m. to noon College of Business Lobby
March 28 9 a.m. to noon Facilities Management Break Room
March 29 9 a.m. to noon 2nd Floor, College of Communications/Education
The dinner will include red beans, smoked sausage and rice, cornbread, a dessert and drink; carry out will be available.
Sponsors for the event include WRFoods, Riceland Foods, Sodexho, Tabasco, Food Giant, PepsiAmericas and the Design Shoppe.
“The ‘RED’ beans and rice lunch is a way for friends of the ASU Foundation to come together and enjoy good food, great company and contribute to a meaningful cause,” Watkins said.
