If you drove by Brookwood Village on March 4th, and smelled chili in the air, you may have been enticed to join the thousands of Chili Cook-Off attendees taste-testing numerous recipes and voting for their favorite flavors.
For the past several years, Kassouf & Co. has been an active sponsor and participant in the annual Chili Cook-Off fundraiser, benefitting the Exceptional Foundation. We are always proud to join other Birmingham employers in friendly competition for a great cause, and this year was no exception.
Mandy Wright led the decorations committee responsible for our Monopoly-themed tent, which mimicked the board game, but was customized to Birmingham streets and neighborhoods. Russ Dorsey’s “Million Dollar Chili” recipe along with Karen Lake’s pickled jalapenos was a hot combination and crowd-pleaser, as our volunteers served hundreds of people throughout the day.
Special thanks to our team members who volunteered their time and talent for this event: Russ Dorsey, Mandy Wright, Katie Krack, Rebecca Yerby, Michelle Carney, Amanda Woods, Maggie Seeger, Julie Parker, Brittany Pennington, Jessica Robinson, Karen Lake, and Kayla Glaze.
