Chili Cook off Fundraiser to Support Gulf Oil Spill Response

The BlueMountain Oil Spill Response team hosted another successful fundraiser!  Participants in the Chili Cook off were invited to bring a pot of chili made from their favorite recipe for a chance to win some great prizes donated by local restaurants.

There were 25 participants with homemade chili recipes that included ingredients ranging from traditional classics like chili peppers to wild additions like venison and pineapples! There was even an apple dessert that came with ice cream (which was a great way to cool down after sampling 25 chilies ranging from mild to very hot)!

Guests and eager samplers were able to test each for a donation, and the fundraiser wound up raising almost $700 to add to the Oil Spill Response team budget!  Thank you so much to all our participants and guests, it wouldn’t have been so successful without you!
