CrawFest 2019: A Success Story
The Cotton Team gathered all of our friends for the annual Cotton Foundation CrawFest earlier this month at Cotton’s world headquarters in Katy, Texas. The event, now in its tenth consecutive year, raises funds for the Cotton Foundation and Taylor’s Place, a retreat for families who are affected by cancer.
This year’s event raised more than $450,000, helping us exceed our fundraising goal of $1 million! We are excited to announce that our decade-long vision for Taylor’s Place is now close to becoming a reality. Cotton recently announced its first Cotton Foundation Director, Larissa Potiomkin, who will be responsible for seeing Taylor’s Place come to fruition.
Nearly 2,000 sponsors, vendors, and Cotton team members attended the event this year. Everyone enjoyed 8,600 pounds of live crawfish, a slider station, jambalaya, boudin balls, and Cotton Culinary’s signature bread pudding. Live music was provided by Pat Green, with Cotton’s own Cooper Wade opening.
