Tex-Mex 2022 Highlights

2022 was an exciting year for the Farrah Fawcett Foundation, as we moved our Tex-Mex Fiesta fundraising event to Texas for the first time. Farrah was a Texas girl, so celebrating her in her home state was very special to us.

We’d like to thank the Dallas community for supporting the event and our work in cancer research and patient support. Also thanks to the always gorgeous Jaclyn Smith for co-chairing, and to George Hamilton for being the world’s best MC.

The Tex-Mex beneficiaries are with Stand Up to Cancer and the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge, which provides a safe, peaceful place for patients and their caregivers to stay during treatment at any local center.

Currently, the Foundation is funding HPV-related head and neck cancer research conducted by our scientific partner, Stand Up To Cancer. The biennial Tex-Mex Fiesta was first held in 2015, and has since raised over $3 million for the cause.
