A Taste of Palo Pinto County event Monday at HHCC

Come hungry.

A Taste of Palo Pinto County is Monday evening at Holiday Hills Country Club.

The vendors scheduled to be cooking and serving up samples of their tasty fare include Chili’s, Golden Chick, Holiday Hills Country Club, Mesquite Pit, Natty Flat Smokehouse, Pulido’s Mexican Restaurant, Todd’s Sauce, The Cellar, Taco Bell, Tastefully Simple, Shotgun’s, Jin’s Express, Lone Star Depot and Palo Pinto Challenge.

There will also be live and silent auctions.

The annual event is a major fundraiser for the Mineral Wells Senior Center. The proceeds from the event are vitally important to the center’s operational budgets, especially in the wake of funding cutbacks by outside sources in recent years.

Ticket sales have been very strong, organizers say. Tickets are $50 for reserved seating, $35 for general admission, and can be purchased at the senior center, 102 N.W. 6th Ave., or at the door. Credit cards will be accepted at the door.

Five-star level sponsors are Backforty Bunkhouse Productions, Baum-Carlock-Bumgardner Funeral Home, Diamond Pharmacy, First Financial Bank, Mineral Wells Hardware & Rental, Serenity Estates and Upham Oil & Gas.

Four-star level sponsors are Alpine Construction, Friends of the Senior Center, Link Field Services, Mineral Wells Index, Progressive Waste Solutions and Titan Bank.

Three-star level sponsors are Bill and Caroline Bennett, D&D Motors, Four Seasons Dental, Jack Powell Ford, Keg 1 O’NEIL, Mineral Wells Noon Lions Club, Mineral Wells Evening Lions Club, State Farm-April Martin, State Farm-Phil Luker, Palo Pinto Thrift & Gift Shop and Ted’s Cabinet Shop.

Two-star level sponsors are Community National Bank, Brazos Animal Hospital, Freeze Carpets, IntegraCare Home Health and Mineral Wells Nursing & Rehab, Oneta Magee, Palo Pinto Nursing & Rehab, 2R Ranch Trading Post, Randy’s Service Center, Todd Hamilton, Wes-Tex Vending and Weaver’s Print Shop.

For more information on tickets, being a sponsor or a vendor or to donate an auction item call the center Monday at 940-325-6470.
