Ronald McDonald House hosts food fundraiser this weekend
HARLINGEN — Whether you love tasting gourmet dishes or enjoy listening to live bands, this may be the fun-filled family gathering you were looking for.
Ronald McDonald House Charities Rio Grande Valley is hosting its “Second Annual Men Who Cook” fundraiser on the lawn of their transformed outdoor eatery on Saturday, September 29, from 6 to 9 p.m.
Over 15 teams will be cooking comfort foods of their choosing while attendees will be able to sit-back, enjoy live music and vote for their favorite teams and dishes.
Participating teams will be competing for three recognition awards: The Foodie’s Choice Award, Ronald McDonald House Charities Award and the People’s Choice Award.
Each team has a mission to raise $2,000 in sponsorships.
As of date, Magic Valley Electric and Harlingen South Swim and Dive are two teams that have already reached their $2,000 goal.
All of the proceeds raised from the event will support the Ronald McDonald House, which provides a home-away from home for families of critically ill children receiving medical treatment in Valley hospitals.
