Customers enjoyed crawfish and shrimp and helped raise money for a good cause.
Trophy Tractor Inc. recently held its second annual Customer Appreciation/Charity Crawfish and Shrimp Boil. Rain had plagued the North Texas area all week, and it looked like there might be a break in the weather. Just before the gala, the rains returned, but everyone pitched in to help move the festivities indoors.
When it comes to the Charity Crawfish/Shrimp Boil, Jeff Miller, owner of Trophy Tractor is establishing a tradition of not allowing anyone to out-bid him.
“Dealing with the Irving Cares personnel and Teddie Story, chief executive officer, has become quite a treat for us and serves a great cause,” said Miller. “We plan on continuing the tradition.”
The chefs for the Crawfish/Shrimp Boil were Chris and Kim Arrington of Irving, Texas. Also as a very special treat for this year, Trophy Tractor invited the Parker McCollum Band to entertain customers with contemporary country music
More than 80 Trophy Tractor customers attended the event at the Grand Prairie, Texas, location to enjoy 150 pounds of fresh crawfish and copious amounts of shrimp, along with new potatoes, corn on the cob and sausage — a Southern tradition.
“My entire company really gets a thrill out of serving a just cause with the charity auction and simply giving our customers and friends good reason to kick-back on a Friday evening after a hard week's work,” said Miller.
