Who doesn’t love pho?! VSA-LSU’s Pho Night consists of the generous donations of broth from local pho restaurants around the Baton Rouge area. Pho Night brings our members and community together over the shared love of pho! Not only in the line for AYCE (all you can eat) pho but also in the main eating area, our members enjoyed the company of each other over a good bowl of pho. Over 100+ people attended our event and ate pho from many local restaurants!

What efforts were used to motivate and involve the organization’s members?

Social Media posts and word of mouth got our members and the community excited for this big event.

Did the organization overcome any challenges that arose while planning and implementing the event? How?

There will always be challenges big or small when planning an event that feeds over 100 people, but VSA-LSU did not have any big challenges. Small challenges: Estimating the amount of people and food needed and the fact that there may be a shortage in food (thankfully this did not happen)
