Chili Cook-off funds local organizations
Rotarians met on Thursday, November 4 to honor several local organizations and award proceeds of the 19th Annual Chili Cook-off held this year on July 24th at The Saddle Rack in Fremont. The cook-off was hosted by Area 3 Rotary Clubs of District 5170.
The event was created 19 years ago by the Sunrise Rotary Club as a benefit for the Rotary Tri-City Clinic. The annual Cook Off continues to raise money to meet that need but has since expanded to include other local organizations as well including Washington on Wheels mobile clinic, Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation (firefighter's choice) and HOPE (Homeless Outreach People Empowerments) Project Mobile Clinic. Additional honorees included Kidango and Martin Kauffman 100 Club (firefighter competition winner choice).
Checks were distributed to: Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation, $5,800; Hope Project Mobile Clinic, $5,800; Tri-City Rotary Clinic $5,800; Washington on Wheels, $5,800; Kidango, $2,900; Martin Kauffman 100 Club, $2,900.
