Bruschetta Bash? What in the world is that and what is it all about?
Bruschetta, sometimes spelled bruchetta and with other variations as well, is Italian bread soaked in olive oil and then toasted with Genoa Salami, Provolone Cheese, a variety of peppers (sweet not hot), sliced tomatoes, onions, and topped with an occasional olive slice.
If you are anywhere in Burns Flat, Oklahoma on Thursday 23 October 2015, all you need to do is follow your nose. It will lead you to the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, which is just north and east of the town’s only traffic light.
Bruschetta sells for $5 an order. An order consists of 3 scrumptious pieces. Bruschetta will be delivered to schools and businesses in Burns Flat. Deliveries will also be made to those who are unable to come to the church to pick up their order. All other orders need to be picked up at the church.
Pre-paid orders are guaranteed. Walk in orders on an as available basis. Tickets will be sold at the town celebration this Saturday or you may stop by the church and get tickets from Tom.
Why is someone cooking Bruschetta?
This is a fundraiser to help the Western Oklahoma Family Care Center. The center helps people in need in Beckham, Custer, Roger Mills, and Washita Counties. Services are free to those who need them but rely on the generosity of the community in recurring donations and fund raising events such as this.
Tom Spence has been cooking bruschetta for the past several years in order to help the church youth group, to raise money for missions to Africa, and now to help the WOFCC.
This is a win-win for western Oklahoma. You get to enjoy the unique taste of Bruschetta and help your neighbor at the same time.
