2018 Crawfest


A little rain couldn’t stop the 9th Annual Cotton Foundation CrawFest from being an enormous success! The Cotton Team, clients, vendor sponsors and other supporters of Cotton all came together to benefit the Cotton Foundation and Taylor’s Place. With a record number of attendees totaling over 1,200, funds raised have brought our goal for Taylor’s Place within reach!

Cotton Culinary once again brought Louisiana to Texas with 6,000 pounds of fresh crawfish, corn, potatoes, and sausage boiled onsite! Other Southern bites served up included savory mini Cajun meat pies, boudin balls, hot cream cheese crab dip, alligator bites, and SWLA chicken and sausage jambalaya. Of course no Cotton Culinary spread is complete without decadent desserts! The beignets and our famous bread pudding topped with Jack Daniels vanilla sauce were a hit all night!

Not only did 1,200 of our CrawFest guests enjoy great food, but they also listened to live music from local artist and Cotton’s own, Cooper Wade, followed by Texas country music star Casey Donahew. Even when the weather poured rain mid-performance, it didn’t stop the crowd from dancing along to his Billboard chart topping hits. After a full set from the Casey Donahew band, our guests raised their paddles during the live auction, with each donation getting us closer to our goal!

We’re almost there! Because of the success of this year’s CrawFest, we’re anticipating breaking ground on Taylor’s Place in the next 12-18 months, bringing life to our decade-long vision. As of date, over $900K has been raised for Taylor’s Place and this could not have been possible without our generous 2018 CrawFest sponsors and volunteers.
