Big Brothers Big Sisters brings Mac & Cheese Cook-off to Abilene

Abilene, TX – October 2, 2018

Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) is excited to host Abilene’s first ever macaroni and cheese cook-off…The Big Cheese! On October 18th, local restaurants, caterers and food trucks will be serving up their version of mac and cheese for your enjoyment. Just like no two BBBS matches are the same, each mac and cheese concoction is sure to provide a unique experience for your taste buds!

The Big Cheese is a family-friendly event and each guest, no matter the age, will get to play a part by voting for their favorite dish. People’s Choice, Kid’s Choice, and Judges’ Choice award winners will be announced. The overall winner from all three categories will be named “The Big Cheese”.

In addition to casting their vote, guests can also participate in the Never Cook Again raffle for a chance to win a collection of gift cards from participating vendors.

Guests can expect to not only leave with a satisfied appetite, but with the satisfaction of supporting the one-to-one mentoring work of Big Brothers Big Sisters Abilene. All funds raised through this event will stay in Abilene and directly impact local children. BBBS matches adult volunteers with one child in a meaningful, mentoring relationship that can change their life for the better, forever.

The Big Cheese takes place Thursday, October 18th from 6-8pm at the Abilene Convention Center, 1100 North 6th Street.
