Chili, Chowder event winners announced, funds raised
ROCKLAND – Monday night, for the second year, amateurs and professionals competed with their best chilies and chowders in an event to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Hundreds attended to taste and judge the 17 entries and $2,200 was raised for MDA. The event was organized by the Rockland Professional Firefighters Local 1584 chapter of the International Association of Fire Fighters and hosted by Trackside Station at 4 Union St.
The winners, which were chosen by the attendees, were: Individual Chowder: Jim Stone; Individual Chili: Bryce Laster (who also won the US Coast Guard's Chili contest last Friday so Trackside Station sponsored him to compete) and Professional Chili & Chowder: Nick Krunkala of The Fog.
MDA is the nonprofit health agency dedicated to curing muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases by funding worldwide research. The Association also provides comprehensive health care and support services, advocacy and education.
