5th Annual Taste of Hays County

Enjoy a great night for a great cause!

Proceeds for the Taste of Hays County benefit United Way of Hays County Education programs and partners. United Way of Hays County works with programs that strengthen early childhood learning and development opportunities for infants, babies and toddlers, provide guidance to local youth through mentoring and tutoring initiatives, increase access to enriched learning opportunities for students of all ages, provide after-school and in-school supports, and strengthen literacy skills for struggling readers.

This year, UWHC hopes to raise $25,000, from Taste of Hays County, for local programs. Every year thousands of residents gain access to critical Education, Income and Health through UWHC programs and partners. Dollars raised through UWHC fundraising efforts, including individual contributions, workplace giving campaigns held at local businesses,corporate giving, and fundraising events, such as Taste of Hays County, are redistributed back into the most crucial areas of need.
