The third annual Chili Cook-off raised more than $5,000 for STOP HUNGER NOW Saturday night in Casanova.

Co-sponsored by St. Andrews Catholic Church and Grace Episcopal Church, the event supports the international hunger relief organization, according to organizer Mignonne Spellmeyer.

The crowd also brought canned goods for local food banks.

Claire Lamborne of Claire's at the Depot, Howard Foer of Poplar Springs Inn and Spa and Tony DeWalt of the Bistro on the Hill, judged the event in which 14 celebrity chefs competed with their best chili recipes. Cooper Wright helped organize and served as announcer.

Katherine Neville, author of “The Eight” and other books, won top honors with her Santa Fe Chili. Casanova postmaster Dee Garrett claimed second place. Dennis Taylor of Catlett won third place with his Buzzard's Breath Chili.

The chili cook-off has become a tradition.

“It was truly a Norman Rockwell moment in time; I loved the whole thing,” said Page Styles, one of the chefs.

The related food-packaging event for Stop Hunger Now will be held Saturday, June 1, at the Grace Episcopal Parish Hall in Casanova.
