February 20, 2019

On behalf of Ready Set School and the board of directors, I would like to thank many people and organizations for their contributions to a great Chili Cook-off that took place on Feb. 9.

Thank you to WNB Financial (Ben Knuesel & volunteer staff); restaurants who cooked and donated the chili; chefs for sharing their tasty talents with us; judges who donated their time and taste buds to the event; Leighton Broadcasting for lending emcee’s for the day; Midtown Foods donation toward food; Coca-Cola Bottling Co. of Winona donation toward drinks; Bloedow Bakery for donation of desserts; Winona Public Library for face painting and art project; Frtiz Speck and the Minnesota Genbu Kai group providing entertainment; Winona Middle School staff; volunteers at the event including board members; and of course community members who attended and supported the event. Over $4,000 was raised which will support Winona County families in purchasing school supplies and clothing for school.

Mandi Olson, Ready Set School director
