									BŎS to host fundraiser for Des Moines Public Schools’
Culinary Arts and Restaurant Management program
19 April 2010
Des Moines, Iowa

BŎS restaurant at the Renaissance Des Moines Savery Hotel will host dinner on May 19
from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. to raise money for the Des Moines Public Schools’ Culinary Arts
and Restaurant Management program. With the guidance of Chef John Andres, the
students will prepare a three-course prix fixe menu comprised of dishes that they will be
judged upon at competition in July.

BŎS will offer full dinner service in addition to the students’ menu priced at $29.
Proceeds will allow the students to attend a national competition for Family, Career, and
Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) in Chicago.

The Culinary Arts program at Central Campus under the direction of Elaine Wolf
prepares students for employment in the hospitality and food service industry. Students
earn one year of credit from Des Moines Area Community College through successful
completion of the program. The DMPS culinary students represent Iowa annually at
various national competitions.

FCCLA is a nonprofit national career and technical student organization for young men
and women in Family and Consumer Sciences Education in public and private schools
through grade twelve. FCCLA’s mission is to promote personal growth and leadership
development through character development, creative and critical thinking, interpersonal
communications, practical knowledge, and career preparation.

BŎS opened in the Renaissance Des Moines Savery Hotel in March 2009 and serves
contemporary Midwest cuisine, featuring local products in made-from-scratch upscale
and comfort food preparations. BŎS serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily. Further
