Thank you to my clients and friends who helped make Tacos & Taps a Success in 2015! 

May 4, 2015 marked the 2nd Annual Tacos & Taps Event for the Clark County Food Bank. This year Tacos & Taps sold out weeks before the event and the night really delivered a great time with a meaningful message. Guests were able to enjoy creative tacos, great beer, and spectacular treats from local Vancouver venders all while touring the food  bank and enjoying live music. It is a great event to help promote local businesses, support the food bank, and allow our Clark County neighbors a chance to really see how the food bank runs and helps support the community.

The event this year raised $31,100 for the Food Bank, an increase of 39% from the previous year. Additionally, the event featured 5 local brewers, 8 local chefs, and 1 local baker.

I would like to give a special thanks to the people who made this event a huge success.

The event was a fun night  with 240 attendees enjoying live music, delicious tacos, mouth watering desserts, and cold beer on tap. I was honored with the ability to serve on the planning committee.
