Kemptville District Hospital held its first annual Chili Cook-Off on Thursday, April 15, 2019 in its Courtyard. Sponsored by the KDH Staff Association, the event was a huge success!
Nine teams vied for the top honours, with team names like ‘Chili Chili Bang Bang’, ‘3 Senoritas Chili’ and ‘Kara’s Hot Chili Girls’. Each one of the chilis was delicious; the judges, from the KDH Foundation Board, were hard-pressed to choose three winners, but choose they did!
Prizes were awarded as follows: first prize to ‘Tracey’s Birthday Chili’ (the KDH Dietary Department); second prize to ‘Southwest of Ottawa Chili’ (Tanya Deans and the OR Department); and third prize to ‘Steph’s Chili’ (Steph Philips from HR and Dennis Piche from Building Services). Best table prize for decorations went to ‘Chili Chili Bang Bang’ (Laundry Services). After the judging, a vast amount of chili was consumed by staff, residents and visitors, to the accompaniment of live music provided by Greg Molson and Danno. Another Cook-Off is already being planned for this Fall!
