OGDEN -- Weber State University President Charles A. Wight, WSU school officials, WSU multi-cultural leaders, WSU development team and Weber State student leaders will be among the first to dine and donate Thursday in an event designed to help low-income, first generation immigrant students complete their higher education.
The event is part of the Sonora Grill Dining for Dollars program and will be held from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday at the restaurant located in The Junction, 2310 Kiesel Ave.
Sonora Grill and Weber State University have teamed up to launch a public awareness campaign and Sonora Grill Scholarship Fund. The campaign aids underserved and overqualified students whose parents have nonresident status in our community. Patrons are encouraged to dine at Sonora Grill and donate to the scholarship fund.
All sales proceeds will be donated and an anonymous donor will match Sonora Grill's contribution up to $25,000. In 2013, Sonora Grill and WSU will award a two-year, full-ride scholarship to one college sophomore.
