Our first planned fundraising event of the campaign, PHO’ndraiser, was a cultural experience of home cooked flavors bringing together community and friends for the hQo project. Tallahassee’s premier Asian-fusion cuisine restaurant, Tasty Eats Beer Garden, nestled inside the funky artists community Railroad Square Art Park and housed inside the park’s only caboose,  sponsored the PHO’ndraiser, helping to raise donations and awareness for the Help a Quad Out cause.

Despite the torrential rain that blanketed us, lots of supporters came, warming up with steaming hot Pho and good times with friends and strangers alike. The PHO’ndraiser, an all-you-can-eat Pho bonanza for $15, raised money for the hQo project through purchase sales of the event, as well as from the sale of the restaurant’s new “Pho me” t-shirts designed by Tan. Many supporters left extra donations to the cause, and in  total $1,500 were raised!

Big BIG Thanks to Tasty Eats Beer Garden, our benefactors of the event, and to all the supporters that came out and harshed the weather with us under the cover of the Garden pavilion and with bowls of Pho in hand.
