Taste of the NFL meets goal for a touchdown!

This year’s Taste of the NFL: The Ultimate Cowboys Tailgate Party officially met its goal to surpass the $1 million dollar fundraising mark for funds collectively raised since this local effort began back in 2004!

A total of $195,523 was raised on Sunday, May 20, at the Omni Dallas. The eighth annual Taste of the NFL event was filled with great food, friends, fun, music, and most importantly a focus on tackling childhood hunger.
