What’s better than a chili cook-off? A chili cook-off that donates all of the proceeds to a local charity! The team at West Shore’s Mechanicsburg office recently planned and hosted a chili cook-off. The twist, everyone voted for their favorite chili using the money in their wallets! The team provided more than 10 different types of chili and raised just under $200 during our lunch hour!
When it was all said and done, West Shore CEO, B.J. Werzyn, decided to match the money raised dollar for dollar, bringing the total donation to $400.We ended up donating all of the proceeds to United Methodist Home For Children. Pictured above some of the West Shore staff presented the donation with an extra large check to the administration of the children’s home, Sue Stuart and MJ Vaitl.
