Originally written November 2010: Yep, you heard it…WE WON! OK, so we didn’t win for the best chili, but Visionary Marketing’s Chili in Paradise booth took 1st place in the Best Decorated Booth category. For a marketing agency, I feel like we won gold in the Olympics!
Each year, the Allen Rotary Club hosts the Allen Chili Cook-off in October or November. All proceeds go through the Rotary Club to some great local charities. I’ve had the privilege of being a Rotarian for a few years, and I started in this amazing club. Come to think of it…I got this event up and running for its first year in 2009. I’ve moved to a Plano club, but couldn’t be prouder of this one for the amazing job they do with such a great event for the community.
Kale and I are huge Jimmy Buffet fans, so how could we not go with this theme for our booth. Last year, we only took 2nd place, but we decided to spruce it up a little to take home the Gold! Yes, the margarita bottle was new this year. No way, was I coming in second twice! If it takes a large margarita bottle to win, then I’m game. If it takes a full service bar in my booth next year, I’m game with that too! Cheers to the VMD team for putting this together, and cheers to everyone else who participates in their local community!
