On Thursday, February 15th close to 200 people attended the 9th Annual Boston Chili Cup, an event to benefit Community Work Services’ culinary program. Held at Ned Devine’s Irish Pub, the Chili Cup attracted 13 restaurants competing to earn a prize for the best chili in Boston. The lively crowd, including friends, donors and supporters of CWS, sampled the delicious fare while being entertained by a DJ and participating in a raffle. Causeway Restaurant and Bar, a three-time Chili Cup winner, was again voted the best chili in Boston.
The event was sponsored by The Briar Group, a longtime supporter of CWS and the Chili Cup. We are grateful for the ongoing support of Austin O’Connor, President and CEO of the Briar Group, and Dessie Kerins, the company’s Director of Operations. Thanks are also due to event co-sponsors Kimpton Hotels, Corona Beers and Tito’s Handmade Vodka. The CWS board, as it always does, played a huge role in supporting this event and making it a great success. Thanks to the entire CWS board and those in attendance including Oliver Spalding, Steve DeSalvo, and former board member Hannah Huke. A special shout out to Paul Davis for his ongoing sponsorship of this event, and leadership as board chair.
