‘One Region, One Table’ highlights new El Paso Everywhere homecoming

One Region, One Table returns for its third year at and some prominent chefs and El Paso expatriates will be pulling up a chair.

The third annual fundraiser produced by Progress321, showcases the unique culinary talent of the region with a sumptuous six-course dinner under the stars at the Pedestrian Pathway, located on the west side of Santa Fe Street between the Judson F.
