Burgerville donating to preschool scholarship fund

During Oswego Playschool’s Burgerville Night next week, local parents aim to raise dollars for the Robin Bunster Scholarship Fund.

Bunster was a teacher at the school who died last year, and her family established the scholarship fund in her honor to support students who wish to attend the Lake Oswego preschool but lack the funds to do so.

From 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Burgerville will donate 10 percent of all food purchases at its location at 15650 SW Upper Boones Ferry Road, Tigard.

Oswego Playschool, founded in 1953, is a cooperative preschool.
