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.
