GRAND JUNCTION, Co.- More than 25 restaurants and caterers teamed up Monday for this year’s “Taste of the Grand Valley,” all for a great cause.

From a cowboy’s delight of pulled pork, beans and coleslaw to the Two River’s dancing bacon mascot handing out peanut butter bacon tarts, hundreds of foodies showed up today at Two Rivers Convention Center to sample their way through the event.

It all benefits the United Way of Mesa County.

In fact, it’s their biggest fundraising event of the year, that helps local foodies as well.

Doors opened at 4 pm, and folks had three and a half hours to gobble down the sweets and treats.

All the booths exhibiting were competing for top honors and prizes, voted on by everyone in attendance.

Here are the official winners….

BEST OVERALL TASTE: Cowboy and the Rose
BEST ENTREE: Cowboy and the Rose
BEST THEME: Colorado Canyons Hospital and Medical Center of Family Health West
BEST BEVERAGE: Olive Garden.
BEST SNACK: Sprouts Farmers Market
