The new 50/50 raffle event at the Chili Cook-off (CCO) this year, the Chili Pepper Drop, was won by our own club member, Glenda Brion, holding her winning little pepper while being congratulated by President Rich Murray! CCO Co-chair Jeff Cantwell reports that $13,000 was raised by the raffle, with half being shared with the raffle winner, and half to be used for Rotary Club good works. Winner Glenda has generously donated her $6,600 winnings to the Community Warehouse Project of Chester County (CWP)! CWP is a multi-service non-profit that collects and redistributes donated furniture and other household items, and works with over 40 Community Partners to benefit individuals, families and veterans. CWP has been well supported by volunteers and Community Philanthropic Grants from our Rotary Club, since its founding in 2017. Glenda is the founder and executive director of CWP.
Capturing photos of the event, held at the end of the CCO, Suzette Webb snapped lots of photos for us of the Chili Drop Off, showing the little peppers everywhere, including the winning little pepper that won.
Following up on the 47 teams who participated in the successful CCO, a new division was added this year, and missed the earlier report. In the Country Cub Division, White Manor Country Club won with its White Manor Chili – congratulations to this CCO team newcomer – and to Glenda!
