Tasty Night at the 3rd Annual Chili Cook Off

It was a tasty night at the 3rd Annual Chili Cook Off held at the PW Fire Station (51 E Hahns Peak Ave) on Sat., Nov. 12, 2022! There was so much delicious food and many bowls of chili were enjoyed by all!

Big thanks to the Pueblo West Fire Department and Chris Tristano for hosting the event!

Also, big shoutout to Daylight Donuts, Swire Coca-Cola and Olive Garden who donated food/drinks for the event. Many other folks brought sweet treats, cold drinks and other food to share.....THANKS!

Of course, none of this wouldn't be possible without the help and dedication my beautiful wife, Yolanda Riccillo provided! She made the awesome trophies and goodie bags the winners received! I love you!

All of the proceeds for this event went to the St. Baldrick's Foundation and the MDA. This event and others like it wouldn't be possible without the love, support and generosity of this community! Thank you for being so kind and helping us find a cure for childhood cancer!
