The 2nd Annual Mac & Cheese Festival benefiting the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Emerald Coast (BGCEC) is this Sunday, March 8 from 12:30 to 4 p.m. at Destin Commons.
This event features local restaurants cooking up gourmet, chef-inspired twists on one of my favorites dishes…mac and cheese!
“We are excited to bring everyone together for this fun, family-friendly event. This event wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of the vendors, sponsors and attendees who make it a very successful fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Clubs.”Shervin Rassa, CEO of the BGCEC
