Chili Cookoff and Silent Auction for Apportionment

January 28, 2017 the Mission Work Area put together a Chili Cook-off where a small group of cooks and bakers donated chilies, cornbread, brownies and hot cider. About 30 people came to test and vote on ten very tasty and different chili's. After voting for their favorite chili everyone went back for as much chili as the wanted, adding a variety of condiments, homemade cornbread and chips, and if they had room for dessert, they could top off the night with homemade brownies topped with ice cream.

The top three chilies came in close. The first prize chili was a spicy vegetarian chili made by Elise Hawkins, with Sue Jacobs and Liz Imoehl taking second and third places.

A free will donation raised $200.00 and the sale of left-over chili sold Sunday morning raised an additional $60.00 which all went to Apportionment. 

In addition to the cook off the Apportionment task force thought it would be fun to have a Silent Auction so nine church members donated silent auction items that brought in $698.00. 

Fun was had by all and no one left hungry !
