Come together: Chili cook-off will be back
The inaugural Federal Way Farmers Market Chili Cook-off, held Sept. 27, netted $3,500 to split between two charities: Special Olympics and South King Firefighters Foundation. The chili cook-off established what is sure to become an annual tradition in which Federal Way police and South King Fire and Rescue firefighters compete for bragging rights. The fire department captured first and second places as well as the people’s choice award. Pictured above are the people whose leadership skills came together and made the chili cook-off possible. See the Oct. 1 issue of The Mirror (shown above) for more photos and a list of sponsors. Right: Farmers Market co-chairs Rose Ehl and Karla Kolibab present checks for $1,750 each to Capt. Kevin Crossen and Officer Stacy Eckert on Oct. 2 at City Hall. “We’re excited about next year,” Ehl said.
