2013 Taste of the NFL Exceeds Goal!

This year's Taste of the NFL: The Ultimate Cowboys Tailgate Party officially met its goal to raise over $200,000 to feed North Texas Children in need.

In fact, it exceeded it...
with $231,095 raised to benefit North Texas Food Bank.

The evening was filled with great food, friends, fun, music, and more importantly a focus on tackling childhood hunger here in our community.  The funds raised will help provide 693,285 meals to hungry children in North Texas.
