Congratulation to Sarah Matteson, the 2011 UNCF BBQ Cook-Off for Education Grill Master!
Umoja Fest is proud to partner with the UNCF to promote educational achievement in the community. For the first time since 2000, the UNCF Walk for Education, formally known as the UNCF “Walk-a-Mile to Save-a-Mind” walkathon was brought back to the community followed by the 2nd Annual UNCF BBQ Cook-Off for Education in partnership with Umoja Fest and “Kids Happy Hour”.
The walk began at Judkins Park and continued through the “African American Legacy Parks,” Langston Hughes Performing Arts Center, and back to Judkins Park.
The day also featured the 2nd annual “UNCF BBQ Cook-Off for Education” in partnership with Umoja Fest and “Kids Happy Hour.” Umoja Fest, a Seafair sanctioned community event, is the largest African American community festival in the Pacific Northwest.
Participants walked to help students get to and through college. Corporate teams, fraternities, sororities, groups, churches, organizations and individuals who participated, realized “a mind is a terrible thing to waste”®. UNCF currently supports over 300 UNCF students and scholarship recipients from the Pacific Northwest and Alaska.
