Riot to End World Hunger!

[Charity] OK, OK we get it, it's ironic to hold banquets to raise money to fight hunger. But look, swallow your sarcasm and just come out to support a good cause. Tonight, Sep. 23 the University of Utah's Lowell Bennion Community Service Center is putting on its eighth annual Oxfam Hunger Banquet, themed "Riot to End World Hunger." The whole "riot" thing is just a theme and guest speaker SLC Mayor Ralph Becker will with his soothing voice be making sure things stay civil, no actual rioting, just good food and good causes. So come check it out at the Olpin Union Saltair Room at 6pm. You can get in for just $5 or five canned food items. The night will also feature speakers like Jim Pugh director of the Utah Food Bank. All proceeds will go towards the Utah Food Bank and Oxfam America. So go stuff yourself and fight hunger--your own and those who are really hungry--it's a twofer! (Eric S. Peterson)
