The Hare Wynn Chili Team served up their unique brand of chili in this year’s Sixth Annual Exceptional Foundation Chili Cook-Off. Team members Leon Ashford, Hughston Nichols and Sharon Kiker, started the day at 6:00 AM. The fire was started, pots were clanging, knives were dicing and chopping and the secret Hare Wynn ingredients were added as our trio of chefs began the brew.

A record field of 75 teams competed for the 2010 chili crown in this year’s “Great Bowls of Fire”, in order to assist in the fund-raising efforts of The Exceptional Foundation. The Exceptional Foundation, which began sixteen years ago, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which began sixteen years ago, provides social and recreational activities to mentally challenged individuals in the Greater Birmingham area.

Unfortunately, we didn’t walk away with the trophy this year but just participating in such a fun and worthwhile event was reward enough. Of course, having large quantities of heartburn medicine made the day even more palatable! To see photos of our booth click here.

Congratulations to The Exceptional Foundation.
