Chili cook-off, barbecue benefits fire district

Money goes to fire district foundation

A chili cook-off and barbecue is coming to the Runnymede Farm in Woodside on Sunday, Sept. 25, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. when firefighter/cooks from the local fire protection district will square off against their cooking counterparts from local restaurants, including Alice's Restaurant and The Village Pub.

The event benefits the Woodside-Portola Valley Fire Protection Foundation, which supplies the Woodside Fire Protection District with the latest equipment, facilities and training.

The sponsors of the cook-off, so far, are Bianchini's Market in Ladera, W.L. Butler Construction in Redwood City, Ginny and Joe Kavanaugh of Coldwell Banker real estate, architect and Planning Commissioner Adolph Rosekrans, and Mike Putterman, according to a statement from the fire foundation.

Children's activities, a silent auction and a tour of the sculpture garden are included. Attendees choose the winner of the chili contest.
