Chili Cook Off Success in 2015

Posted on Updated on

thank you burst
Thank you to everyone who came out to support our annual Chili Cook Off. We couldn’t have pulled it off without our chili contestants, our market place vendors, the band, the chili judges, the set-up and take-down crews, the hard workers during the event and….YOU! It was fantastic seeing all the wonderful people that make up our generous community. We, as Optimists, are so grateful you let us be part of your day. The children we help all year long through the funds raised at this event are grateful for your attendance and donations as well!

Congratulations to our winners below.  Everyone made tremendously different and savory chili for people to try.  I even had people asking if they could buy quarts of the contestant chili to take home (I’m sure the cooks did too!).  But, sorry folks, only Optimist Chili can be taken home for your enjoyment later in the week!
