The Historic Northeast Midtown Association in Kansas City, KS, held its annual Chili Cook-Off on March 1 at Nefertiti’s Restaurant and Banquet Hall, 13th & Quindaro, KCK.

For the fundraiser, members of the community cooked their special chili recipes which were judged by a panel of “celebrities”: Honorable Judge Tony Martinez, Christal Watson - Deputy Chief of Staff for the Mayor Alvey, Unified Government Commissioner Dr. Jane Philbrook, and new Kansas City Community College President Dr. Greg Mosier.

After the judging, individuals in attendance chowed down on the rest of the assorted chilis. Taking home top honors this year for the best chili was Rhoda Bell.

After the chili-tasting, the party was on, with music provided by KC’s Galaxy Show Band.
