Second annual Spanish banquet fundraiser approaching


Thu, Dec 26th, 2013
Posted in Fountain Education

On March 14-16, 2014, six students in grades 8-12 from Fillmore Central will travel to Bemidji, Minn. to take part in a Spanish immersion weekend at Lago del Bosque, one of 15 language-themed camps offered by the Concordia Language Villages for over 50 years. Students will experience language and cultures firsthand in a simulated environment that is the next best opportunity for learning the language and experiencing cultures aside from studying in a Spanish-speaking country. This year, the theme is Argentina, so students will eat authentic Argentinean food, take part in culturally relevant activities, and most importantly, immerse themselves in Spanish!

Last year a group of students attended an immersion weekend and needed to raise money for transportation and personal expenses. Accordingly, the students, Fillmore Central Spanish teacher Brian Wolfgram, Fillmore Central head cook Sue Barlow, regional chef Shari Jarett, chef Mark Stadler, and other volunteers hosted a Spanish-themed banquet at Fillmore Central High School that featured freshly-prepared authentic dishes from a variety of Spanish-speaking countries served family-style in three courses. In the end, the Spanish banquet was successful and raised enough money for transportation and personal expenses.

With the intention of continuing to host the Spanish banquet each year, Wolfgram saw the need to make the banquet more professional by purchasing new banquet supplies. Over the summer, he received a $2,000 grant from the Wal-Mart Foundation, specifically from the Wal-Mart store in Decorah, Iowa. He purchased the supplies from Total Restaurant Supply in Rochester, Minn. They gave Wolfgram a significant discount on their products in order to accommodate his budget. Although he has purchased the banquet supplies, he is lacking kitchen shelving so that he will be able to store the supplies for future events.

At 6 p.m. on February 22 at Fillmore Central High School, Wolfgram and the Spanish immersion camp participants will host the second annual Spanish banquet. The banquet will once again feature freshly-prepared authentic dishes from a variety of Spanish-speaking countries, but the menu will be different than last year’s. The banquet will be for approximately 50 people and tickets will be $25 each. Students will be assisting in the following ways: designing and selling tickets, menu planning, tangible menu creating, event planning and budgeting, creating a .....
