In spite of the snow and cold recently, there was an outstanding turnout for the 3rd Annual Chili Cook-Off, Poker Walk and 50/50 Raffle hosted by The End Zone 314 Main St. in Hobart.
First, we would like to thank all of the judges who gave up their Sunday afternoon to pick the best chili in Hobart from the 19 entries on hand. Thank you to Scott Frey, Tom Lounges, Mayor Brian Snedecor, Nikki Lopez and Jerry Herzog.
Thanks to all of the volunteers and Jaycees who helped make this such a successful event.
We would like to thank those businesses who contributed prizes for the events. These include Holiday Rent-A-Car, Hobart Dairy Queen, Applebees, The End Zone, Strack & Van Til and Hooters of Schererville.
Thank you to everyone in the public who braved the cold weather and either prepared a crock of chili for the judging or donated to taste the entries.
Thank you to all of the downtown Hobart businesses who elected to participate in the poker walk including Cagney’s, Main Street Bar, Mickey D’s, The End Zone and Agave Restaurant and Bar.
Thanks to Jim Anderson who donated the cash portion of the poker walk prize back to the Humane Society.
A special thanks goes out to Richard Metts for coordinating a large part of today’s activities and to The End Zone for hosting it.
We could not have done it without everyone’s time and generosity.
The animals and staff say THANK YOU!!.
ALSO, The Humane Society of Hobart would like to thank Pet Supplies Plus of Portage for allowing us to come out and showcase some of the fur kids that we have available for adoption. We would also like to thank everyone who stopped in to shop and say hello in spite of the unseasonably cold weather that we have had the past couple of days.
