Another ultra-popular Altrusa Chili Challenge is in the books and the winner is … the Hope Pregnancy Care Center.
The Center took top honors Saturday during the well-attended, wonderful-aroma event at Expo Hall. It was the 19th consecutive Chili Challenge sponsored by Altrusa.
“We had a wonderful day. Thanks so much to all who stopped by and joined in the fun,” Ann Frost, Altrusa secretary, told TownCow via e-mail.
Connersville Eye Center finished in 2nd place and 3rd place went to the Business & Professional Women team. Thirteen teams competed.
The Showmanship Award was won by Krusaders for Kids and the People’s Choice Award went to Whitewater Regional Federal Credit Union. The coveted People’s Choice Award goes to the team that collects the most “tasting” money.
A large throng of people enjoyed the various events at the Challenge, particularly the ‘Texas-style’ — no beans or pasta — chili. Frost said the amount of money raised by the event will be determined soon. — kimball hendrix
