Colon Cancer Awareness Day Chili Festival 2015

Over 500 people came out to the 4th Annual “Challenge Your Colon” Chili Festival:  Celebrating the Local Culinary Flavors of the Hudson Valley, which was held on Sunday, March 15, 2014 at Villa Borghese.  This family-friendly event featured vendors serving up their prize chili and cornbread recipes, plus other specialties such as cheeses, salsa and desserts.  Arlington Wine and Liquor served tasting portions of delicious wines and Dutchess Beer Distributors showcased a fabulous tasting of beers.  The event also featured Bob Stump and the Blue Mountain Band, “pasta tastings,” games and activities for children.  Joe Daily from 92.1 Lite FM was our MC of the event and award ceremony.  Thank you to Peter Engel for sharing the story of his courageous battle with Colon Cancer.

Funds raised at the event will help provide colon cancer related services to patients in the the Hudson Valley.  Visit the “Care” Fund on our website to see one of the many ways that Premier Cares Foundation events help patients in our community.
