Thanks: Devens Charity Chili Cook-Off! by Elaine Gailey
Thank you all for coming out Oct. 7 for our eighth annual Devens Charity Chili Cook-Off! It was another GREAT success!! We had 18 different varieties of chili and a day of tons of fun! Our winners this year are: First place - Jose Banchs and Michael Harmon from J & S Business Products in Ayer (Booth #21), who generously donated their winnings back to the charity!! Second place - Michael Keoseian from The Springhill Suites, Marriott (Booth #16). We raised more than $6000 for the families affected by autism. Thank you so much to everyone who came out to support us! Thank you to all the people who made chili! I know how hard it is to do and how much time and money it takes! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Without all you chili-makers willing to enter this contest, we would not have a fundraiser. And thank you to everyone who donated to our raffle. How generous of all of you! And thank you to The White Collar Criminals for entertaining us throughout the day. Such great music! See you all again next year for another great event.
