Chili Cook Off

For more than 15 years, Venture’s Corporate and Atlanta offices have been holding a “Venture Chili Day” each January, where we have either made a huge pot of chili to share or held a “Venture Chili Cook Off”.

This year, we had 11 entries for Best Chili and we added a new category – Best “Non Traditional” Chili. We were delighted when Richard Krabbendam, with FirstBank, won. Richard drives down, from Chattanooga, each year with a pot of his homemade chili.

Congratulations to our Winners!

First Place – Jeff Gaston, Atlanta

Second Place – Larry Hubbard, Corporate

Third Place – Tammy Baughman, Corporate

Winner (Non Traditional) Chili – Richard Krabbendam, FirstBank/Chattanooga, Vice President – Commercial Relationship Manager
