University of St. Thomas (Houston) Raises $35,000 for Scholarships Via Taco Tasting

The University of St. Thomas’ 2nd Annual Two Saints and a Taco Tasting, held April 18, netted nearly $35,000 for scholarships. Some 450 attendees enjoyed taco samples from 10 different restaurants at the Saint Arnold Brewing Co. Celebrity judges chose Bocados restaurant as the winner, while Torchy’s Tacos won the popular vote.

In addition to ticket sales and sponsorships, the Alumni Association raised about $7,000 through 30 auction packages all with a saint, beer or taco theme.

The money raised will benefit the UST Alumni Association Annual Scholarship Fund, with scholarships to be awarded to continuing students.
"It's the kind of event where you can feel good about having a great time, because what you're giving is going to a good cause and you're having fun doing it," said Jennifer Mengis, a graduate and chair for the event.
