Orange Sunrise Rotary was one of more than a dozen entries at the First Annual Rotary District 5320 Chili Cook-Off held July 31st during the Rotary Angels’ Night to End Polio Now.
Rotary clubs gathered for a tailgate party under the Big A and presented a variety of chilis for tasting and judging. The Orange Sunrise entry, prepared by member Jason Curtis, included several secret ingredients that had the crowd returning for more of the spicy-fruity concoction.
Rotarians purchased the right to vote by paying $5 for a chili bowl and spoon. Additional voting tickets were $1, with most of the proceeds benefitting The Rotary Foundation. The first and second place winners received a share of the proceeds as well.
When the dust settled, Orange Sunrise had collected more than $600 in votes, taking the first place prize. Runnerup was the Rotary Club of Anaheim.
Then it was off to the game, where the club was thrilled to see its name it lights during the game!
