Saturday, February 23rd was the 5th Annual Chili Cook off and Home brewing competition. The event took place at the Elks Lodge, which was packed to capacity with a line down the block. The event was sponsored by hMAG , Ben & Jerry’s, Hotel Victor and Simply Beer and organized by Hoboken Volunteers. Last year, the event raised $10,000 for Hoboken’s True Mentor program. This year proceeds will go to the Jubilee Center. The judges and attendees sampled 27 different chili samples before landing on a winner. All different types were represented- turkey, vegetarian and even one with chocolate. Before announcing the winners, founder of Hoboken Volunteers, Tim Occhipinti said, “This event CHILI COOKOFF A Roaring Success has grown and grown and grown and has been great for the Hoboken community and giving back to the community.” ••
