Thanks for making the 5th Annual DCTC Chili Cook Off a massive success! We had over 120 students, staff, and faculty enjoy 27 kinds of chili. We raised a little over $500 for “Be the Match,” and organization determined to find a cure for leukemia.

The top chili 2015 commemorative aprons went to Mathew Moylan from Lancer at DCTC for his chili “Tres Diablos.” Second place went to Judy Sundendorf for her chili named “No Name Chili.”

The winner of the signed Minnesota Vikings jersey was randomly picked out of a bucket of entries of those who brought chili. This year’s winner is Amy Eppen!
