Our March 5, 2016 Chili Cook-Off event in support of the Phase 2 Capilano Community Park Redevelopment project was a great success with lots of laughs and tons of fun! $2,600 was raised in support of the Phase 2 project, but more importantly, it was a wonderful community gathering with a lot of enthusiastic support from our local residents as well as friends and family too! And to top it off, there were 17 delicious chili dishes to sample and vote for! There are so many people to thank who supported our event. We are so appreciative of the time that our elected officials took out of their busy schedules to attend the event. Thank you to:
— Honourable Marlin Schmidt (MLA for Edmonton-Gold Bar)
— Ben Henderson (Edmonton Councillor Ward 8) and one of our Chili chefs!
As well, a big thank you to Suzuki Charter School’s principal Karen Spencer and Capilano Community League President Brent Larson for attending and being chefs! In addition, thank you to the additional 15 incredible park project supporters who were chili chefs for the event:
-~- Patti Meropoulis – 1st place chili, SECOND YEAR IN A ROW!!! -~-

A special thank you to Fargo’s Capilano, 50 St. Earl’s, Bernice Townsend, Sandy Schaloske and Lorena Franchuk (Curves Bonnie Doon) for donations that came in to support our mini silent auction that also took place during the cook-off.
This event could not have took place without the efforts of the Capilano Community Park Redevelopment Committee, particularly Heather and Laura. And last, but definitely not least, a big thank you to everyone who came out and enjoyed the event!
