Boots, Bar-B-Q & Bachelors
"Bachelor of the year," Hayden Head, wins for Careity Foundation
In a stunning victory for those in our community who are battling cancer, Hayden Head was named this year’s Bachelor of the Year by raising $275,863 for Careity Foundation at the 10th Annual Boots, Bar-B-Que and Bachelors event held at The Brooks at Weatherford.
Careity founders Lyn Walsh and Beverly Branch spoke on behalf of the foundation and shared how the money raised will benefit cancer patients and their families.
Other winners for the night were Chef of The Year, Downtown Cantina’s Paxton Lanning for his delicious offering of pork and peach taco. A Critic’s Choice award was also given to Mama Monica's for their delicious meatballs and onion and potato bread.
All together the bachelors raised $ for the five charities which included the Weatherford/Parker County Animal Shelter, Careity Foundation, AdvoCats, Stars and Strides Therapeutic Riding Stable and the AUsome Allen Foundation.
The other hardworking bachelors were Dylan Kring, Gage Scott, Allen Howell and Greg Dunn.
The guests at the event dined on delicious food from local restaurants including the aforementioned Downtown Cantina, as well as Hooker’s Grill, Antebellum Ale House and Mama Monica's. Dessert was provided by Nothing Bundt Cakes.
“So many sponsors and businesses contributed to tonight’s successful evening,” said Marsha Brown, publisher of Parker County Today Magazine, the presenter of the event. “We applaud tonight’s winners, but everyone wins as the dollars raised help people throughout the county through our great nonprofit partners,” she continued.
The bachelor and charity of the year were chosen by raising the most dollars during the time period beginning in early July at a kickoff event held at Baker’s Ribs. The restaurant was chosen by ballots cast by event attendees.
