City Employees Give Generously

December 20, 2010 by Brittany Blank

Special to The Community NewsOnce again, the employees of the City of Weatherford show their commitment to the community with a donation of just over $10,000 to the United Way of Parker County.

The money was raised through several events such as paying to wear Texas Ranger “gear” during the playoffs, a Chili Cook-Off, gift basket drawing, change collection competition, payroll deductions and one time donations.

“Our employees take pride in the community - they not only work here but they live here and raise their families here; giving back is an easy choice for us,” stated Danielle Felts, Community Relations Manager for the City of Weatherford. “We work closely with the public day in and day out; therefore, it is easy for us to see the importance of the human services that the UWPC helps to fund every day.”

A new twist to this year’s campaign included a professional chef as the judge of the chili cook-off: Owner and Executive Chef for the Fire Oak Grill, Eric Hunter. Hunter brought another level of competition to the table, and enjoyed the event as much as the employees. “It was a lot of fun, I hope to be asked back again next year,” Hunter said. “I was impressed with the quality of all the entries, it was a tuff decision.”

In the end, Weatherford Fire Department Lieutenant Jim Bradford walked away with both the Judges Choice and the People’s Choice Awards which was the first time that one person has won both honors!
