WestShore Chilli Cook-Off 24 Aug 2013-30-30 (2)

Westshore Chili Kickoff Success.


Blazing Sally wins it again!

The ninth annual Westshore Chili Cook-off was held on August 24th. Approximately 300 people came out to find the best chili on the Westshore, enjoying 80 gallons of chili in the process. The team from The Salvation Army’s Westsong Community Church took home 1st place for Judges Choice Award, and 2nd place in the Showmanship category for their western theme.

The Chili Cook Off started in 2004 to fulfill two needs in Langford the first was to foster community spirit and bring families together during the summer and secondly as a fundraiser for The Westshore Rotary Club.

“The Westshore Rotary Club is a faithful supporter of the Salvation Army in the west shore. It felt good to stand alongside the club in their fundraising efforts, and support this event, especially since we are one of the community groups who benefit from the club’s goodwill and social awareness on a consistent basis,” Captain Gorge Kogan, Corp Officer at Westsong Community Church.

Big thanks to the Westshore Rotary Club for hosting this event and for the ongoing support as well as Jacqui Whitney for kindly preparing the team’s chili.
