Chaired by Kiwanian (and creator of the event) Joe Pergola, attendees adorned their favorite western attire and came ready to ‘throw down’. There were five courageous entrants to the cook-off and ‘spicy’ seemed to be the word of the day.

Reknowned Food Critic Peter Dills returns for the fifth consecutive year as the Celebrity Judge. Music and Line Dancing instruction are provided. Hats off to Shirley Anhalt and Marta Capoccia, who were two of the best fancy dancing ladies of the evening in 2014.

There were two categories for the contestants, the first being the Celebrity Judging by Peter Dills and the second was The People’s Choice Award where attendees picked the winners.

In 2014, first time entrants Maria and Brian Decker won 1st Place in both categories with Brian’s Special Recipe. Second Place in the Celebrity Category went to Amy Putnam for her Railroad Chili. Second place for the People’s Choice Award was given to Fred Thomas.

Now is your chance to enter the chili cook off. Let’s taste your best chili receipt and see if everyone agrees your chili is the best in town!

Funds from the event will go to the ImagineArt program of Creative Arts for children at Sierra Madre Elementary School.
