SAGA would like to thank everyone who supported and attended our Cook-Off Chili August 24, 2011. The Tackle Box Bar & Grill was our kind host for the evening’s event. A special thanks to our sponsors for donating such wonderful prizes to benefit SAGA Humane Society Shelter Animals.
After counting the votes, we had a tie for 1st place. Jan Brown with her Hee Haw Chili won a $200.00 BZ Gift Certificate to Wild Mango's - Courtesy of Amy Knox. From Tackle Box Bar & Grill, Ms. Melanie with her Chili con Carne also was a winner. She received a George Foreman Jr. Grill - Courtesy of Saga Humane Society. 2nd Place was Ingrid Lima with her Chicken Chili; she was awarded $100.00 BZ Gift Certificate to Aji Tapa Bar - Courtesy of Victoria Woleski. We would also to say a special thanks to Gunter and Anna at Mathieu's Delicatessen who missed the Cook-Off Chili but were selling the entry that Gunter made and donating 20% of the sales to SAGA. It was a chocolate banana parfait with a chili, phyllo tuile and a Kakaw Belizean Chocolate dipped caramelized chili pepper.
The raffle prizes were a highlight of the evening, with such mouth watering goodies up for grabs. The lucky winners were Jan Brown winning a Basket of Kakaw Chocolate donated by Kakaw Chocolate. A delicious Rose Cupcake Bouquet from Heavenly Cupcakes and Treats was won by Eileen Jamison. She kindly donated her prize to some young fellows who always help SAGA sell raffle tickets. Rebecca McDonald was the happy recipient of a Bailey's & Coffee Basket courtesy of Saga Humane Society.
This event would not be possible without the help of our hard working volunteers, Grant Crimmins, Ari Trejo, Allan Soto, Lilian Marquez, Carolina Gonzalez and the rest of the Board and staff of Saga Humane Society.
Proceeds for the event will go to support SAGA Shelter Animals until they find Forever Homes.
