There were brimming bowls of chili and plenty of dogs — but no chili dogs — at Fado Irish Pub
on Saturday, March 25, for the 23rd annual MaxFund Chili Cook-Off. The event raised funds for MaxFund, a no-kill animal shelter, and also helped pooches find new homes with an adoption rally outside the restaurant. Attendees filled up on great chili from professional chefs and home cooks while getting a little canine companionship. All photos by Ken Hamblin.
