BRAWLEY — As important as classroom lectures are, some of life’s lessons make the biggest impact in the chore of earning one’s daily bread and the Cowbelle Barbecue is a striking teaching moment for its youthful participants.
For more than 30 years the Cowbelle Barbecue has proved a dollar earned is more satisfying than one received toll-free. The fundraiser for the Brawley High School sophomores, class of 2019, helps with their senior year activities, noted Grace Tomboc, class adviser. Two thousands tickets were sold that brought diners to the Lions Center on Thursday evening. Along with class officers and BUHS administrators, local merchants helped out, providing product for a tri-tip dinner. Socials Clubs pitched in with entertainment, BUHS Hula and Ukulele Club, The Freshmen Dancers and Hidalgo Society Folklorico.
