Hundreds of students lined up in the outdoor spaces of the Kellogg Art Gallery to get some carne asada and chicken tacos in support of the Latino brotherhood organization Hermanos Unidos taco fundraiser.
The fundraiser was held on Tuesday, during U-Hour, however, the tacos were sold out way before the hour mark.
Daisy Posadas, a first-year liberal studies student stopped by the taco stand and purchased a combo that included horchata.
“These events are helpful because it lets students know what clubs are out here in Cal Poly Pomona,” Posada said.
“It helps fundraising activities for future club events, and gives students more variety of foods to eat on campus.”
Hermanos Unidos members split up the work as some helped prepare the meat, chicken and tortillas, while others served customers and took orders.
“I enjoyed seeing everyone in our organization bonding because members can not always meet up and this brings us together,” Daniel De Leon, fundraising chair for Hermanos Unidos said.
“I’m thankful for students coming out to support our organization it made me very proud.” “Our goal was to sell out and we did.”
Funds raised will help the organization prepare for its upcoming winter conference.
The conference consists of many different workshops for students in the organization that will be held in San Francisco.
This conference will unite Hermanos Unidos with other familias from multiple CSU and UC campuses.
“I was glad to see so many students buy our tacos,” third-year urban regional planning student and Hermanos Unidos member Jose Escamilla said.
“Selling out was expected because in past events we always sold out and I was very happy with the turnout.”
