12th Annual Chili Cook-Off

Southbridge, MA February 2019 –   The staff at Southbridge Rehabilitation & Health Care Center for the past 12 years have kicked off Super bowl weekend with a chili cook off. This year, there were seven contestants facing off against each other to see who the Chili Cook-off Champion would be. Judged by other staff members and residents of the facility, Stephanie Merceri, Scheduler, came out on top of the competition, with 2nd place going to Ann Faille, Social Worker, and 3rd to Augustine Aiguosatile, Executive Director. Each bowl of chili was $4.00, but if they were sporting Patriots attire, the bowls were $3.00 each. All proceeds went to the Employee Relations Fund, which goes towards staff events at the facility, such as giving out presents at the staff Christmas party. The whole event was one big party, with everyone in their Patriots gear in anticipation of a big win at the game! Pictured is Maureen Smith congratulating 2nd place winner Ann Faille.
