FRISCO, TX, May 07, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Careington International Corporation is a proud sponsor of this year's Taste of the Cowboys event on May 7. The event, held by the North Texas Food Bank, is a part of a national effort to help raise money to fight hunger across the U.S.
This year's event will be held at The Ford Center at The Star in Frisco, the world headquarters of the Dallas Cowboys. Careington is proud to support this event as a corporate sponsor, joining other local and national companies as event sponsors. The North Texas Food Bank hopes to reach a goal of $450,000 from this event, and 100 percent of the proceeds will help feed hungry children across North Texas.
The event will include a silent auction, live entertainment, gourmet tailgate food stations from area chefs and more. The world-famous Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders will also be in attendance, and guests will have a chance to mingle with celebrity sports figures like former Cowboys players Preston Pearson and Charles Haley as well as current player Travis Frederick. Donated items, including signed footballs, will be used in the silent auction to help raise money for the North Texas Food Bank.
"We are proud to be long-time partners with the North Texas Food Bank," said Matthew Rinker, co-owner of Careington. "We are excited to attend and contribute to this important cause and great event."
This is the 13th year that the event has taken place, and the attendance is expected to be more than 1,100 people -- the highest ever in the local event's history.
