Can you think of a better way to spend a couple hours than surrounded by several different kinds of warm and gooey mac & cheeses? Sounds like heaven to me!

The 2nd annual Mac & Cheese Festival is this Saturday, November 3rd from 4p-7p and it raises money for the Tri-State Food Bank. At the inaugural event last year, over $16,000 was raised, allowing the food bank to provide food to thousands of hungry folks in our area. With your help, we'd love to see that number get a whole lot bigger this year. Keep in mind that the Tri-State Food Bank can make a dollar go a lot farther than you and I.

Tickets are $35 each when you buy them in advance. The price does increase the day of the event. Tickets are available at TriStateFoodBank.org. Your ticket allows you to sample several different mac & cheese recipes...from traditional to exotic to even desserts! There will also be live entertainment, an auction and a cash bar.

The festival is happening at the Tri-State Food Bank, located at 801 E. Michigan Street in Evansville.
