Chili Cook-Off Winner:
Keith Howell | Chili #2

March 17th, 2024

Somerset Artists' Co-Op Chili Cook-Off WinnerThanks to all who cooked, served and came out to support the Co-Op at our annual Chili Cook-Off fundraiser this year on Saturday, March 16th!

Kevin Howell‘s tender beef chunk chili edged out Commissioner Ben Carpenter and wife Katrina‘s traditional chili, Chef Damon Barnhart from The Clay Haus restaurant’s savory entry and Dale Hague, president of the Artists’ Co-Op Board’s fiery spiced chili with a mix of heat and clove intrigue. Congratulations, Kevin!

We sold more than 75 seats this year and sold hundreds of additional dollars in art during gallery shopping hours. We met new friends and got to spend fun time with old friends. Thanks again to all who contributed and dropped in – we’re excited for next year and hope to see you soon for a class or shopping at the Co-Op!
