Tacofest Raises Over $29,000 for Meals on Wheels
We are proud to announce that the third annual Waterloo Region Tacofest, presented by MTE, has raised over $29,000 for Community Support Connections – Meals on Wheels and More. Last Friday July 3rd was full of amazing food, brews and happy Tacofesters, not to mention some very happy vendors who walked away with the big awards of the night! Congratulations Taco Farm, winner of The Golden Taco, Public Kitchen & Bar, winner of The People’s Taco, and Wildcraft, winner of The Vegetarian Victor.
And for the first time ever, our judges awarded Best Brew to Lake of Bays Brewing!
Our Presenting Sponsor MTE Consultants Inc. continues to be a huge supporter of Meals on Wheels through their event sponsorships and team meal deliveries to our clients. New this year was our Photobooth Sponsor eSentire, who brought us Flashpoint Photobooth allowing Tacofesters to take away snapshots of the night for memories all year long. Also new this year was our Green Sponsor The Boathouse, who provided the reusable glassware for beer sampling while our Entertainment Sponsor Your Neighbourhood Credit Union, brought us local group Safe As Houses.
We especially want to thank our 12 taco vendors and 12 craft beer vendors who donated all of their product to the event. Without our vendors, there would be no Tacofest. Why not consider showing your support by visiting a few of our vendors this summer! There were also so many other supporters that made Tacofest happen. Go to http://tacofest.ca/news/ to see them all and to read our thank you. And of course, thanks to everyone who came out in support of Meals on Wheels. We hope you'll be back for more good times, tacos and craft beer next year!
