Everyone was a winner at the Memorial Hermann Northeast Hospital Annual Chili Cook-off
TEXAS MEDICAL CENTER (March05,
A total of 13 lucky teams representing more than 18 departments and units at the hospital served up chili in very creative booths - Bubba's Fillin' Station, Roadkill Café, Space Cowboys Chili and El Jefe's Cantina were among the more imaginative.
Employees were encouraged to come to the transformed parking lot to sample the creative kinds of chili, vote for their favorites, and enjoy a performance by the Humble Wildcatter Square Dancers.
Every entry was a winner but several received awards:
The Chili Cook-off raised more than $600 that will be donated to the PIC Employee Assistance Fund which assists Memorial Hermann employees throughout the System who are experiencing a crisis or catastrophe resulting in a financial emergency.
The Chili Cook-off is sponsored by Partners in Caring, the Memorial Hermann employee organization charged with establishing a unique environment, where patients, families, employees, physicians and all others who enter any Memorial Hermann facility know they are in a special, caring place.
