Soroptimmist International of Calaveras County held its third annual “Take It To Heart” Chili Cook Off at the Murphys Historic Hotel on May 4. People’s Choice awards were presented in the Best Chili, Best Quirky Sides, and Best Booth categories. There were 14 entrants in the chili category and four in the quirky sides category. Great fun was had by all!
Best Chili winners were Stephanie Woolverton and Linda and Rudy Vallejo of the Tex Mex Trio. Best Quirky Side went to Shelly Smith of Angels Camp. The Best Booth was created by Brian Goss, Kevin Clerico, and Joel Lacitignola of the Murphys Historic Hotel.
Net proceeds from the event help fund SI of Calaveras County’s “Take Women To Heart” program, in partnership with Mark Twain Medical Center, providing free lipid tests to Calaveras County women.
