2012 Chili Fest A Success

A belated post after Hurricane Sandy.

Fun and great food were had by all at GIG's first Chili Fest on October 13th while listening to Ruby and the Diamond Kings.

A special thanks to our 6 entrants: Ellen Wasyl, Mary Anne McCarry, Lori Coco, Miriam Francis, Linda Lawton and the representatives of the Deep River Fire Department Carlos Uphold and Kevin Brewer.
Their entries varied widely including traditional beef and bean, turkey chocolate, butternut squash-white bean-chicken, and vegan black bean. All were enjoyed with corn bread donated by Pamela's (made by our GIG group volunteers), brownies donated by UDI's and coffee compliments of Westbrook Dunkin Donuts.

In the end it was a tie between the Deep River Fire Department's beef and bean chili and Miriam Francis's vegan chili.  Both taking home $300 a piece to support their respective organizations. Congratulation's to Carlos Uphold and Keven Brewer from Deep River and Miriam!
