FALL SOCIAL: Chili Cookoff

The OCWS Chili Cookoff was held Nov. 5 at the Courtyard on a beautiful day with over 150 people attending the event.

The guests also were provided hot dogs, hamburgers, salad, quesadillas, popcorn and amazing desserts by the Cooks Caucus. We had the Winemakers Group pouring their homemade wines and the Wine Wall kept everyone enjoying the winning wine.

The Wine Wall generated $1,000 for scholarships! Thank you, Rochelle Randel. The music provided by the Three 2 Sevens Band keep the dancing going the whole afternoon.

We had 11 teams making their delicious chili for the event. They worked hard in preparing the chili, decorating their location and serving all the attendees with tasty chili. Thank you to all the teams for their great entries!

So many people contributed to making the Fall Social a fun experience. It is always impressive to see how many of our members volunteer, plan, coordinate the setup, serve the wine and set up the courtyard.

Thank you to all who made this event a great afternoon full of fun!
