The annual chili cook-off was once again held Sunday at Patrick’s Pub to benefit Team Patrick’s Leap in the Lake that further supports special needs children at Camp Moore.
Mix a Bar Scene, Live Entertainment, Chili, 50/50 Raffle and a Tricky Tray on a cold and snowy day, and you are bound to have a great Sunday afternoon, as the 100’s of attendees that participated in the great event will confirm.
Jean Burk-Ujvary, who oversees the Chili Cook-Off stated. “We are all one when it comes to raising funds for the Special Needs Children; we’d like to thank all of the restaurants around the lake, and Patrick’s Pub for hosting this event. The Tricky Tray prizes this year was well beyond what we’ve had in past years.”
The ten chili entries from around the lake were carefully judged by Mayor Michael Francis and Councilwoman Dawn Roberts, as they looked for Aroma, Taste, Texture, Color, and after-bite. After the careful judging of all ten entries, the winners were declared.
- 1st Place went to Shannon (Play Interview)

After the winners were announced, the crowd was able to sample each of the entries. Live entertainment at the event was performed by Hopatcong Sound Machine who donated their time and played throughout the contest to help support this special cause.
