Mac ’N’ Cheez Mania, Little Rock’s inaugural mac and cheese festival, is a fundraiser benefiting missions that serve children, fight hunger, and promote health and education. In its first year, more than 1,500 people attended the event, helping TUMC raise $16,000 for local charities. TUMC donated an additional $4,000 to total $20,000 overall.
“Trinity is proud to work with these five non-profit communities to make a difference in lives, particularly concerns related to health, education, hunger, and children,” said Rev. Betsy Singleton Snyder, pastor of Trinity United Methodist Church. “This was truly a community-wide event. We’re already looking forward to Mac N Cheez Mania in 2016.”
Mac ‘N’ Cheez Mania was held on April 11, 2015 at War Memorial AT&T Stadium. The event featured more than a dozen home-style teams who competed for bragging rights and prizes, along with more than a half dozen restaurants who showcased their best Mac N Cheese dishes.
The second annual Mac N Cheez Mania will take place on Saturday, April 9 at War Memorial AT&T Stadium. For more information visit LittleRockMacAndCheese.com.
