I volunteered to be a judge at the 1st Annual Chili Cookoff in Cuenca to benefit Frank Gonzalez's 4-year-old son Frank Angelo. The group organized this event to raise funds for cochlear implants and future surgeries to relieve spasticity and to provide full-time home care.

Twenty chili cooks turned out to prepare a pots of chili. The selection included vegetarian, peanut butter, Filipina, and Texas-style concoctions. There was a huge turnout and every morsel of chili was served to the judges. We were also served Texas Sheet Cake and Cowboy Beans.

The winning team was Rene and George Fedyna. They donated their dinner certificate prize from Mansion Alcazar to Milena and Frank Gonzalez, the parents of little Frank Angelo. $1106 was raised today.
