FRED Team 6th Annual Chili Showdown & Food Drive

Bringing the heat at FRED

Every year around this time our team gets into serious competition mode. Our annual Chili Showdown is an event in which our team cooks and our clients, business partners, and friends get to eat and judge their best culinary efforts.



Community Giving

This year, we had the honor of partnering with NeighborImpact to collect food items for families in need in our community. We are happy to see our collection barrel overflowing with donations; thank you to all who contributed!


Winner Winner

Congratulations to this year’s big WINNER, Brandon Cook-Bostick! In an unprecedented turn of events, Brandon’s chili was a clear crowd favorite and won all three categories: Bad Ass Beans, Hotter Than Fred, and Freakin’ FREDtastic. Quite frankly, it was perfection in a crockpot.


Team fun + community giving = a winning combination. Thank you to all who came, ate, voted, and most importantly, donated items to NeighborImpact!
