On Saturday, May 3, the NFL and Dallas Cowboys are going to tackle hunger with the Ultimate Cowboys Tailgate Party benefiting the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB). Since its inception in 2005, Taste of the NFL: The Ultimate Cowboys Tailgate Party has raised more than $1.61 million for hungry North Texas children. This is a great way to raise money for the kids in need in our community and to have a great time doing so!
