Orlando Culinary Academy's Chapter of Eta Sigma Delta Donates Build-A-Bears to Nemours Children's Clinic

Orlando (September 11, 2008) - The Orlando Culinary Academy (OCA) chapter of Eta Sigma Delta donated approximately 175 Build-A-Bears to children at the Nemours Children's Clinic in Orlando on Monday, August 25. Several Eta Sigma Delta student officers, along with club/project advisors Dr. George Ojie-Ahamiojie and Chef Tyler Brassil, presented the bears to Clinic Medical Director Dr. Judy Wall on behalf of OCA.

Over 140 students belong to the Orlando Culinary Academy chapter of the Eta Sigma Delta International Hospitality Management Society. Eta Sigma Delta is an honor society developed to recognize hospitality and tourism students for outstanding academic achievement, meritorious service and demonstrated professionalism.

“At Orlando Culinary Academy, we strive to give back to our Central Florida community as much as possible,” said Joe Hardiman, president of OCA. “Our chef instructors aim to instill this sense of community in all of our students and I am so please to see our chapter of Eta Sigma Delta take such pride in giving back.”

This special community project not only engaged the OCA students, but the Build-A-Bear Workshop also generously donated 60 bears to the cause.
