In addition, “Bert Ogden has always been a strong supporter of our events. They understand our communities’ need for these quality of life experiences.”
In 2020, “We unfortunately had to cancel our event as our main priority was to stop the spread of COVID-19 and help aid our small businesses.” said Larralde.
Events such as Texas Cook’Em help support small businesses in different ways. “Texas Cook’Em is a tourism event as we get many attendees from throughout the state and nation. Tourism brings dollars to Edinburg as our attendees stay and shop in Edinburg.”
