Chili came with fixings, including jalepeno
cheddar cornbread muffins donated by
Sherrie Campbell. 
For each cup of chili sold during the East Niagara Chili/Chowder Cookoff at Second Presbyterian, two people were fed -- the purchaser and the person their donation goes to help through the Peanut Butter & Jelly Drive.

More than 100 cups of chili were sold this afternoon at the church, 167 Van Buren St., meaning more than 100 jars of peanut butter, jelly and fluff can be given to needy kids and families in Western New York.

Tom's Diner took top prize in the restaurant chili category, narrowly edging out the Pleasant Valley Tavern.

In the amateur chili category, Sherrie Campbell's meaty chili scooped up the victory. Mark Edmister came in second and Mark Cooper followed in a close third.

Most patrons said each chili was delicious in its own right ... but each had a very unique flavor.

"The participants knocked it out of the park," Kenny Allore said. "My tummy is happy."

Tina Sheley and Traci Williams added baked goods to the mix with Sheley's frosted sprinkled brownies being the talk of the event.

The event was sponsored by East Niagara Post.

The Peanut Butter & Jelly Drive continues through Dec. 6. Jars can be dropped off at several area businesses.


East Niagara Post is the official media sponsor of Hockey Day in Lockport.
