The Kiwanis Club of Alameda held its 21st annual fundraiser on Jan 25. All proceeds will be given to community non-profits in the spring. The club reports the event was a lot of fun for everyone and included: the chili competition and tasting; silent auction; a barbecue buffet dinner; raffle and live auction; entertainment by Dance 10 and general dancing to end the evening. Winner of both the People’s Choice and the Chefs’ Choice awards was the chili prepared by the Alameda firefighters.
