The University of Texas-Pan American teamed up with H-E-B on May 29 to raise money to benefit UTPA's Ballet Folklórico and Mariachi Aztlán.

H-E-B donated $2,500 to the dance and music groups to help them with their expenses after UTPA volunteers helped garner more than 300 people to sample products from the grocery chain at its location at 2700 W. Freddy Gonzalez Drive in Edinburg.

The goal was to have 250 people try various foods set up at different stations throughout the store from 5-7 p.m. but H-E-B and UTPA far exceeded that target by 6:30 p.m., thanks to a supportive community.
