Workers at the Department of Environmental Services hosted their fourth annual Chili Bowl on Friday, Oct. 17, to raise money for Operation Santa Claus. For a $5 donation, those who attended got to try (and judge) 10 chili entries. The event raised a total of $330, which will be used to buy gifts for children through Operation Santa Claus.
The chili cooks were competing for top entry in three categories: vegetarian, beef and poultry. And the winners were:
- Best beef chili: Jennifer Kulacz, Department of Safety
- Best vegetarian chili: Gail St. Onge, Department of Environmental Services
- Best poultry chili: Melanie Doiron, Department of Environmental Services
Congratulations to the winners, and thank you to all of the chefs as well as the judges.
