A JOOI (Junior Optimist Octagon International) Club Fundraiser brought out Cubanissimo, an authentic Cuban Food Truck, and Paso Robles’s own Coffee BoxKids band to the PRHS parking lot on Jan. 25. For 10 dollars, guests were able to enjoy Cuban Black Beans over Rice or a Half Cubano Sandwich with Yuca Fries, Tostones, Maduros, and Garlic Dip while listening to the Latin-Inspired music of senior Jake Van Wiggeren, junior Spencer Anderson, senior Alec Kleinman, sophomore Dylan Smith, and Brenden Weaver.
“I think [the fundraiser] went very well, I was surprised because we barely sold 100 tickets but almost 150 people came…it was a huge success. I’m so excited for all JOOI club is doing and for future events,” said JOOI club president and senior Graham Farrell.
The JOOI club raised $148 dollars and is planning to have future fundraisers with multiple food trucks. The Coffee Box Kids also expressed interest in playing at a future fundraiser, according to Van Wiggeren.
