On May 16 the Preceptor VI NU chapter of the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority hosted an enchilada drive-through and sit-down dinner to raise money for the sorority’s many charitable endeavors.  

Dinner chair, Susie Salas, reported more than 375 drive-through dinners were sold, with more than 80 people enjoying dinner at the Los Banos Elks Lodge.

A raffle was held with more than 30 gifts awarded and a live auction for another 20 items concluded the fund-raising event.                          

Sorority president, Charlotte Affonso, told the gathering the local chapter has been in Los Banos for more than 50 years, and has contributed thousands of dollars to needy families in our area.                                             

Joining Salas in the annual fund-raising event were sorority members, Thelma Nava, Charlotte Affonso, Adele Buie, Dianne Gauper, Gisele Negy, Marilyn Carlucci, Joyce Saldabehere, Sandy Fialho, Terri Rharbi and Karen Perreira.

The sorority thanks all the donors, volunteers, sorority members and especially the Los Banos Elks crew led by Marty Oates.
