Lastly, Mr. Cantu said on behalf of the Los Fresnos Rodeo Committee,
“We would like to thank all of our sponsors who supported this event. Without their support, it would have not been as successful. The Cookoff is put on by the Los Fresnos Rodeo Committee and I would like to thank all those committee members, volunteer judges, and others that put in their time and hard work in making this Cookoff a big success. We are looking forward to this great event again next year and we hope to see you all on February the 18th, 19th, and 20th for the Los Fresnos Rodeo.”
