October 25, 2012 | Cowboys & Cowgirls Who Cook X | Seabrook

With All Hallows’ Eve just around the corner the Cowboys & Cowgirls Who Cook X was perfect timing for a costumed themed event. From a supersized Sumo wrestler, an adorable Raggedy Ann to Sonny & Cher and the Pope of Pub, the Endeavour Marina was filled with fun. 

The food served by more than three dozen community ‘chefs’ was delicious. Signature dishes from some of the area’s favorite restaurants to secret family recipes gave guests a sampling of a wide variety of dishes and flavors.  

Entertaining the lively crowd was one of the bay area’s long time favorites, Kelly McGuire and his band. Congratulations to Kelly McGuire on his latest CD entitled “King of the Island” which was nominated for the 2012 Album of the Year in the Texas Music Awards.

Eddie Harper of Wiredin.cc was the live auctioneer enticing feisty bidding to raise money for scholarships for local high school students. Enjoy the photos
