The 2nd Annual Chili Cook-Off was hosted in Iola last Friday and we had a wide variety of chili’s to sample. Eight participants competed in hopes of taking 1st place. Each of our participants chose a charity to represent with the hopes of winning a money donation for their charity.
To find out who won 1st place with the prize of $200 you can watch the video below.
As for the rest of our participants, tying for 2nd place with a prize of $75 goes to Brian Derus (One Small Drop) and Dennis Trebs (St. Adalbert Parish). In 3rd place, with a prize of $50 goes to the Kent Sykes (Wounded Warrior Project). The remaining four participants will receive $25 for their charities. Kelly Loken (Kayla Toelle Scholarship Fund), Laurie Haas Jakusz (Amherst Food Pantry), Laurie Stoltenberg (Family Crisis Center in Stevens Point), and Butch Pomroy (Tomorrow River Scholarship Foundation).
Thank you to all our participants and everybody who came and sampled some chili. Your contribution and time is appreciated. We hope to see you again at next year’s chili cook-off!
