In its eighth year, the event raised more than $20,000 for the Weatherford College Foundation which provides scholarships to local students as well as support for the oldest community college in the southwest.

“From the perfect weather to the awesome food, this was the best Taste of Parker County yet,” said Brent Baker, Executive Director of the WC Foundation. “Thanks to everyone who made this a special night.”

 
Patrons of the event also had the chance to vote on their favorite food and drink of the evening, and, new this year, a panel of celebrity judges were called in for the inauguration of a few additional categories.
