What do you get when you combine pots of chili and Grey Cup Sunday? A fun way to raise money for the Salvation Army.
On Sunday, November 27th the Royal Oak on Victoria Street in Whitby, Ontario was filled with the aroma of eight different mouth watering pots of chili. The first annual Grey Cup Chili Cook-off and Fundraiser was under way.
Three judges sampled 8 small bowls of chili identified only by a number. The judges, Dale Russell world renowned guitar player from the Guess Who, Glenn Healey ex NHL goalie and TV announcer, and Niecy Dillon from the Rotary Club of Whitby – Sunrise.
It was a tough competion. The sweat was pooring off the judges as they ate and rated each pot of chili. After three rounds of judging the finalists were chosen. (Rumour has it the judges justed wanted to keep sampling the different chili recipes because they were all so good.)
Third prize a gift certificate to the Royal Oak went to local culinary queen, Jenaya Lumley owner of the Drunken Smoker your source for tasty treats ranging from original jams to smoking good jerky.
Second prize, a coupon for 50% off of an award winning wine kit and brewing experience from Winexpert Whitby went to Kim Court.
First prize, a Panasonic tablet and accessories donated by BreezeMaxWeb went to Errol Gee. (Who knew adding Amarone and dark chocolate to chili would be a good thing?)
After the contest bowls of chili were sold to the customers at the Royal Oak. All the money was donated to the Salvation Army in Whitby.
Why did BreezeMaxWeb donate a prize?
Supporting communities where we work is important to BreezeMaxWeb. We were asked to support the first of what will be an annual fund raiser for the Salvation Army in Whitby. One of our local media consultants asked if we could donate a prize and we were excited and happy to support the Salvation Army.
