Friends of the Port O’Connor Library held a Chili and Gumbo Cook-off at Hooper’s Bar and Grill on Saturday, October 28th. Jim Hooper was the host extraordinaire to seven competitive teams of cooks and the Friends sold raffle tickets. All proceeds from the tasting fees and raffle were donated to the library fund bringing us one step closer to achieving the dream of library completion. The ghosts and goblins of Halloween weekend found fun and food at the cook-off and added funds to the library cause. Thanks to all who sampled and sipped and congratulations to the cooks who took the titles. And don’t worry if you missed it this year because of the other festivities in town. Hooper has held this fundraiser for several years and will be ready next year. Thanks for your amazing support of the new library Jim Hooper, and thanks to all the participants as well. Here is a list of the winners that day.
