OGDEN — Sonora Grill, 2310 S. Kiesel Ave., will host a Dining for Dollars fundraiser on Wednesday, Feb. 6, to benefit Weber State University’s Oportunidad Scholarship Fund.

“This event is something that we look forward to every year as it brings out the best in our community,” said Enrique Romo, WSU’s Access and Diversity executive director. “The event is special because it helps some of our most vulnerable students pursue their higher education aspirations by providing scholarships to remove some of the barriers that stand in the way of achieving their academic potential.”

An anonymous donor will match funds from Sonora Grill up to $25,000. In the previous five years of the event, the restaurant and donor have contributed more than $120,000 to the scholarship fund.

A special scholarship menu will be offered for $12 and includes a choice of entrée, chips and salsa. Regular menu items will also be available. Reservations are recommended and can be made by calling 801-393-1999 or at thesonoragrill.com.
