A Taste of Rio is Almost Back, But What Does it Mean for Students?

Jun 5, 2022

A Taste of Rio at Rio Hondo College is back after three years on Friday, June 9, 2022. The event is open to the public and will feature food, alcoholic beverages, and an auction for those in attendance.

The event is somewhat costly to attend, but it serves a more significant function in benefiting Rio Hondo College. It’s not just a fancy event for people with money or anything like that. Instead, anyone who wants to contribute to Rio Hondo College, even if slightly, can attend.

The only thing is, to attend A Taste of Rio, tickets are a must. The cost for general admission is $75 and $125 for early VIP access to the function. Tickets are available online.

According to the Rio Hondo website, the 2022 A Taste of Rio will feature local restaurants like California Grill, Tacos N Miches, and Tepeyac & Tequila Sports Bar. In addition, the event will have craft beer from Starwood Brewing. Alcoholic beverages will be sold at the event, but it is limited to 21-year-olds and up.

But despite the festivities of the evening, A Taste of Rio is an important event hosted by the Rio Hondo College Foundation.

The Rio Hondo Foundation is a non-profit organization that accepts and raises donations from the public. The Foundation also hosts a golf tournament apart from A Taste of Rio. 

The funds the Rio Hondo Foundation receives are then given right back to students. Subsequently, the Foundation offers Rio Hondo College students scholarship opportunities every school year with the funds. 

There are a lot of Rio Hondo College students who may not be aware of this fact, but the College does offer financial assistance that students can apply for.

Scholarships for the 2021-2022 school year are already closed. Winners were announced in March. But the application process will open by the end of 2022 for the 2022-2023 school year. It’s a little help that can assist students in paying off their tuition with less worry.
