OIT’s Chili Cook-Off

Posted on February 8, 2012 in All

The Office of Information Technologies (OIT) hosted a chili cook-off on Tuesday, January 24, to raise money for the Holy Cross Harvest Food Drive. Fifteen people volunteered to make chili and eight people brought bread or cornbread. Over a hundred people came and sampled the chili that ranged from mild Hawaiian chili to some super-hot vegetarian chili, then cast their votes for the best. Jeff Critchlow’s Firehouse Chili won the hot chili prize, and Laura DeLuca’s Chili with Bacon and Black Beans won in the mild chili category. A great group of volunteers set the cook-off up and cleaned up afterwards. The event raised more than $500 for the food drive.
