Best o’ the West Fest Fundraiser Rides Back to Town September 12

Second annual fundraiser for West Texas Food Bank and Food 2 Kids features cooking by Cowboy Cook Tom Perini and much, much more!
ODESSA, Aug 1, 2013—Git along, lil dogies! The West Texas Food Bank and Food 2 Kids are pleased to announce their biggest fundraising event of the year, the second annual Best o’ the West Fest is scheduled for Thursday, September 12, 2013 at La Hacienda Event Center, 12610 Highway 191, Midland. All proceeds work to alleviate hunger in West Texas.
Attendees can expect dancing to the two-steppin’ sounds of the massively talented Anthony Ray Wright Band, live and silent auctions featuring exotic trips, stays at the exclusive Cibolo Creek Ranch and Resort, jewelry and much more.

Of course the star of the evening will again be the food: appetizers and desserts provided by area restaurants while the main, mouth-watering meal will be catered by Perini Steakhouse out of Buffalo Gap, Texas. Cowboy Cook himself, Tom Perini, will be on hand for a VIP meet-and-greet and live cooking show where YOU could be the star!

While the jobs boom is helping fight hunger in the Basin, hunger is still a serious problem. One in four children in Ector County and one in five children in Midland County are food insecure. Meanwhile, skyrocketing housing and food prices make it hard for those on a fixed budget to make ends meet. Best o’ the West Fest helps raise critical funds in order to fill almost 50,000 sacks of food for hungry elementary school kids in the Food 2 Kids program and provide almost 3.2 million meals by the West Texas Food Bank.

Don’t get left in the dust! Sponsorships and individual tickets are still available. Call West Texas Food Bank Executive Director Libby Campbell at 432-580-6333 or Food 2 Kids Board Secretary Lisa Hill at 432-638-4236 for more information.
