Kiwanis Chili Cookoff Raises $20K for Alameda Nonprofits

The Kiwanis Club of Alameda hosted a record-breaking chili cookoff fundraiser last Saturday, January 27, raising more than $20,000 in one night for Alameda nonprofits, according to their spokesperson Patricia Bowen.

More than 200 guests enjoyed chili tastings and a three-meat barbecue catered by Back Forty. “No one left hungry!” Bowen said. The first-place winner of the chili cookoff, by popular vote, was the Chicken/White Bean Chili, with Vegetarian Chili taking second place and Texas No Bean Chili in third.

Attendees also enjoyed both a silent and live auction as well as a raffle for high value items. All auction items sold out. One of the highlights was western dancing by Dance 10, and dancing to DJ Richard’s “Sound Explosion.”

The Kiwanis Club extends its thanks to sponsors, donors, guests, and Alameda supporters for a “memorable evening,” Bowen said.
