The Villa Borghese in Wappingers Falls was filled with happy chili samplers Sunday at the 7th annual Premier Cares Foundation Challenge Your Colon Chili Festival. Not only were there all kinds of wonderful chili available to sample, but also chocolate chip cookies, craft beer and wines--even ice cream and cupcakes!--all provided by local establishments.
All the funds raised support local charities to offer services for patients with gastrointestinal diseases, including colorectal cancer.
After thorough tasting and voting, Chili Award winners included Adams Fairacre Farms in Poughkeepsie;
and Mill House Brewing Company in Poughkeepsie.
In the Chocolate Chip Cookie Category, winners were Cardoso Cookies in Hopewell Junction; and
Sweet Obsessions Cafe in Poughkeepsie.
This is certainly a very popular event! Thank you everyone who made it possible, and all of you who supported the Festival. Watch for more pictures on the Premier Cares Foundation Facebook page here.
