The annual chili cook-off was 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 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 18 chili entries from around the lake that were carefully judged by a non-professional panel, as they looked for Aroma, Taste, Texture, Color, and after-bite. After the careful judging of all 18 entries, there was a surprise tie between number 2 and 17.
The tie required the Larry Bellack Jr. Captain of Patrick’s Pub leap in the lake to come in and break the tie, based on his own judgment.
“It was a difficult choice as they were both very good, but I have to score number two as the winner.” Stated Larry.
1st Place went to Darlene
2nd Place Cathryn with a pork-based Chili
3rd Place was taken by Jill
Larry added for everyone, “In Addition if you are looking to help support our cause e-mail email@example.com and we can add you to the Patrick’s Pub 2018 Lake in the Lake. Your leap helps support a very special cause as gain money for the Special Needs Children and Camp Moore.”
Live entertainment at the event was performed by Ciro Patti Jr. who donated his time and played throughout the contest to help support this special cause.
