A Taste of Cy-Fair set a new record raising well more than $50,000 for Cy Hope! The annual event saw a little more than 2,200 in attendance and the number of participating restaurants, distributors and local businesses has tripled in size since year one. Food, drinks and fun were had by all who attended.
Lynda Zelenka, executive director of Cy-Hope, said the nonprofit is thankful for the fundraising the event does. Cy-Hope offers multiple programs for at-risk and in need children including a backpack program to deliver food to students, Hope Centers that provide tutoring and recreation and Dierker’s Champs, a baseball program. All proceeds from ATOCF go directly to Cy-Hope, Beattie said, and last year the event raised more than $40,000 for the organization.
Businesses participating in this year’s ATOCF include Azul Italian Kitchen, Cypress Trail Hideout, Hanan’s Cafe, Backyard Grill and more. A local artist will paint a mural throughout the event, with the chance for participants to photograph the artwork. A sellers market will feature a plethora of vendors from local businesses.
Enjoy cuisine from over 40 participating restaurants and sample wines and beers at the third annual A Taste of Cy-Fair. The event also feature live music, a silent auction and market vendors.
