The United Way of Monongalia and Preston Counties will be hosting their Annual Mac N’ Cheese Cook Off on August 20th from 2 – 5 p.m. at the Morgantown Market Place. Attendees are invited to sample the versatile cheesy pasta dish from a variety of local restaurants.

The restaurants include Bartini Prime, Iron Horse Tavern, J.W. Thirsty’s, Regatta Bar and Grille, and Terra Café. Each restaurant will come up with their own creative take on the classic comfort food, and the winner will be selected by a People’s Choice vote.

Tickets to the event include admission, a heaping taste at each restaurant, and a personal bottle of water donated by Coca Cola, and a dessert cookie! Tickets are on sale now priced at $12 and can be purchase online at motownmacncheese.com.

“You get to help your community by eating macaroni and cheese, that sounds like a win to me!” says Engagement and Events Manager Sarah R. Rowan Giosi. The proceeds from this event will benefit the United Way of Monongalia and Preston County’s initiatives to build a stronger and healthier community. The funds support this year’s campaign, providing assistance to 52 programs at 27 local charitable organizations. “This is a chance for community members to bring their families out for a fun day,” continues Giosi, “while also making it possible for the United Way to continue to do very meaningful work in our area.”
