RMDH Jessica Burdg at Donor Wall

Labconco’s Chili and Soup Bowl 2013 raised more than $500 for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City. There is never a bad time to donate to the cause since the local charity serves about 67 families on any given night. The charity, which provides housing to families whose children are experiencing medical problems, provides two houses, Longfellow and Cherry. 

Labconco's Jessica Burdg, first place winner of the soup competition at the Labconco 2013 Chili and Soup Bowl, presented the Labconco Chili Cook-off fundraiser check today to Ronald McDonald House Charities. The scene was set in front of the "donor wall," and the artwork featured behind Brandi Sachse, RMDH Development Director (left), Labconco's Jessica Burdg (center), and Gina Dennis, RMDH Guest Relations Manager (right) is made entirely out of recycled materials.

The winners of Labconco's CHILI AND SOUP BOWL competition were...

FIRST PLACE CHILI: Mark Meinders for his "Rex Chippewa's Sweet Meat Delight"
FIRST PLACE SOUP: Jessica Burdg for her "Too Much of a Good Cheese Can Be Wonderful"
SECOND PLACE CHILI: Kari Dutton for her "Creamy Wite Chili"
SECOND PLACE SOUP: Elmer Sprague for his culinary concoction simply entitled, "Soup"

Labconco thanks all whom participated and all of the judges as well.
