The Winners

Thank you

From our amazing restaurants and vendors to everyone who purchased a ticket, we are blown away by the growth this event has witnessed in the last 4 years, and we thank you. We honestly never expected this (1500 people…wow!!) and we are humbled beyond belief.

Next year will be better than ever, and we’re already working with our dedicated restaurants on how to fine-tune the event experience, including two different sessions and punchcards along with a more streamlined line system. Just wait until you see what we have planned!

All funds raised from this event allow us to continually reinvest in our educational outreach programming, which includes free youth concerts, preschool residencies, piano donations, instrumental petting zoos, virtual reality visits and more. Click here to view all of our outreach activities.

You are the reason behind these smiles, and we can’t thank you enough. Seriously, your support has an immediate and lasting impact on the lives of tens of thousands of people each year.

See you in 2020 for the 5th anniversary of Mac n’ Cheese!
