The Cleveland Heights Recreation Advisory Board hosted its first ever Chili Cook-off on Nov. 3, 2012. The event hosted eight local businesses — Cedar Lee Pub, Inn on Coventry, Tommy's, New Heights Grill, O'Riellys Pub, Rockefeller's, Zagara's Marketplace and Barle Soup and Sandwich.
Local businesses Whole Foods, Starbucks and On The Rise provided local artisan breads and pastries.
The event was a real success — $1,700 was raised for the Cleveland Heights Youth Scholarship Fund.
"I am so proud of the support from the community considering a lot of residents were still without power thanks to Hurricane Sandy," said Alissa Branford, chairwoman of the Recreation Advisory Board. "This is sure to be an event that only gets bigger each year."
Congrats to Barle Soup and Sandwich, winner of the People's Choice award for Best Chili.
