Everybody won at the 34th Annual Taste of the Bluegrass fundraising event at Keeneland Friday night.

An estimated 1,000 people turned out to enjoy food from around 60 vendors.

About $100,000 was expected to be raised for God's Pantry Food Bank to help feed the hungry.

By buying food in bulk, and working with different businesses, God's Pantry can turn that money into $1 million worth of food.

"Currently, we know that we're feeding one in seven people who live in central and eastern Kentucky," said God's Pantry CEO Marian Guinn.

"So, this money is important to enable us to have our trucks on the road to be able to access fresh produce from around the country, to bring in a variety of nutritious foods and make it available to families in need," Guinn said.

ABC 36 News anchor Lauren Gawthrop was a dessert judge at this year's event.
