The University of Alabama Black Faculty and Staff Association's Wakanda Scholarship Ball will take place on February 5th, 2022. Ahead of the event, a local bar has added a Wakanda-themed drink to their menu.

Session Cocktails recently created a new drink called "Vibranium" set to be on their menu this week. The drink creation is part of their #CocktailsForACause campaign.

Throughout the year, Session Cocktails partners with different organizations within the community. the organization gets a special cocktail on their menu and portions of that drink's sales are donated to the organization.

The "Vibranium" drink features a butterfly pea blossom infusion with other ingredients, that gives it that purple color associated with the fictional Marvel element.

Session Cocktails will serve this drink all week in support of the upcoming Wakanda Scholarship Ball.

The entertainment lineup is packed for the event. the ball will feature saxophone recording artist Loyd Watson Jr., comedian Mattie J, recording artist Nimiwarmi Ighofose, and Townsquare Media's Big Dawg DreDay as the DJ.

All proceeds will go towards both the BFSA Annual Support Fund and the BFSA Quasi-Endowed Scholarship Fund. These funding opportunities aid BFSA in awarding scholarships, funding student-centered programming, and helping with needs-based requests impacting minority students attending The University of Alabama.
