Roseville team hosts annual Chili Cook-Off

For over 10 years, the Veritas Roseville branch has gathered for a friendly, mid-winter Chili Cook-Off. On February 27, the tradition continued with a competition highlighting three different categories: Traditional, Vegetarian, and Alternative.

The winner with the most tickets in each category had their name added to the coveted Veritas Chili Trophies! 

To expand on the fun, five years ago a winter medallion hunt tradition was added to the festivities. Individuals or teams have the opportunity to solve clues at the chili cook-off to win the prize. 

This year's winners included:

Traditional Chili Champion - Kevin Bieker (runner up, Harry Blanek)

Vegetarian Chili Champion - Janelle Green (runner up, Scott Forbes) 

Alternative Chili Champion - Greg Kempenich (runner up, Vandana Nyalpelli)
