The event lasted from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. after school on Wednesday. The Food trucks stationed were in the student parking lot located near the large gym. A group of people attended the fundraising, composed of students, family, teachers, and High School Principal, Dr. D'Agostino, who was browsing at the menu of one of the food trucks while conversing with other people.
The three food trucks that made their appearance on Thursday were Short Stop Burger, the Flip Truck, and the Lime Truck. Short Stop Burger sold barbecued food and the Flip Truck sold primarily burgers. The Lime Truck offered various kinds of Mexican food, ranging from carnitas fries to aSweetn' Spicy Steak Taco.
"I got a pulled pork barbecue sandwich. The most amazing barbecue I ever had,"said senior Joe Williams, who had bought a burger at Short Stop Burger.
Ten percent of the funds raised during the event will go to the activities scheduled during the appointed times. The sports that were fundraising on the first day were skating, football, and cheer. Other sports would be fundraised for on different days. Cheer had also set up a table for people who were looking to buy a dessert for two dollars.
According to Ms. Carey Scott, Costa Mesa's Activities Director, the first day of fundraising met up to their expectations.
"I think that it was successful in that it created a nice buzz."
The food trucks also have a history in Costa Mesa, arriving at the OC Fairgrounds every Thursday from 11 p.m. to 2 p.m. to sell their products to people looking to eat a gourmet lunch. The Lime Truck also made an appearance on television on the Food Network. The Lime Truck became victorious over eight other food truck competitors in a show called, "The Great Food Truck Race" and won $100,000.
ASB is hoping that more people would help support Costa Mesa's sports and activities by coming to the next food truck night this December 6.
