Great Success at the WRLM Solar-Powered Chili Cook-Off – with no sun!!

On Saturday October 23rd the regular White Rock Local Market was host to an excellent neighborhood chili cook-off, raising money for the Hexter Elementary School Garden in East Dallas.

A Very Special Thanks to Dan Lepinski and Mother Earth News Radio for bringing out their solar trailer to power the whole cook-off, which Dan managed to do even on a cloudy day! We are so grateful!

Also thanks to the judges – Krys Boyd, Tim Rogers and Gordon Keith – for taking a chance.

And, thank you to all of the hundred-plus folks who came out in the almost-rain to taste chili.

Finally, thanks to all of the talented cooks who were part of the cook-off.  We really appreciate your support and spirit of adventure. See you next year!
