Recent Event: 9th Annual Boston Chili Cup


Held at Ned Devine’s Irish Pub, the 2017 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. We want to extend a heartfelt thanks to Austin O’Connor, President and CEO of the Briar Group, and Dessie Kerins, the company’s Director of Operations. The Briar Group is a longtime sponsor of the Chili Cup. Thanks also to event co-sponsors Kimpton Hotels, Corona Beers and Tito’s Handmade Vodka. As always, the CWS board 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.
