We were honored to be asked to help judge XDI's Fourth Annual Credit Union Chili Challenge at the Del Mar Race Track on August 6, 2016. Nearly 20 credit unions participated cooking up their special recipes to see who would come out on top as this year's winner.
So we took a few pics of the event, as well as the accompanying car show and scenes from the world famous Del Mar Race Track that actor Bing Crosby helped found back in the 1937.
Here are this year's winners...
1st place: SchoolsFirst Federal Credit Union and $5,000 for its charity of choice
2nd place: Xceed Financial Credit Union and $3,500 for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals
3rd place: Pacific Marine Credit Union and $1,500 for its charity of choice (another $2,000 winning People's Choice Award)
Firefighters First Credit Union won Best Showmanship and $1,000 for its charity of choice
Cabrillo Credit Union won Best Booth and $1,000 for its charity of choice
Enjoy -- and it's never too early to start concocting your credit union's recipe for 2017!
