Congratulations to chili cookoff winners

Dear Editor:

Congratulations to Robertson Banking Co., recently declared the Grand Chili Champion of Tuscaloosa. Astute and dedicated judges at the Exchange Club’s Eighth Annual Chili Cookoff on Feb. 8 determined — by blind sampling and using a rigid methodology — that Robertson produced the region’s best chili in 2014. Attendees voted Capstone Bank for Best Chili. Best Booth was by Bryant Conference Center; the Best Costume award went to Capstone Bank; and PNC Bank was the winner for Best Showmanship.
The Exchange Club of Tuscaloosa is profoundly grateful to its distinguished family of sponsors. A complete list of our generous and vital sponsors is presented at the club’s website,
Exchange Club Chili Cookoffs combined have raised a total of $124,000 in the last eight years. All of the funds raised are devoted to the club’s charitable activities in the community, focusing on youth. For example, the club recently presented hundreds of teddy bears to area police departments and hospitals to provide comfort to traumatized children.
The Exchange Club of Tuscaloosa is in its 92nd year. Visit our website to view Chili Cookoff pictures and learn about the club. We meet weekly at noon on Thursdays at Indian Hills Country Club. Our reputable speakers are prominent citizens with enlightening presentations. Come and join us.

Glen Smith

Exchange Club of Tuscaloosa
Chairman, Chili Cookoff
