110/365 Parking lot: Cook for the Cure

Each year, my company hosts a charity event in October that benefits Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The event is called Cook for the Cure, features a cooking contest amongst my coworkers, and we invite clients, partners, friends and family to come join us.

The theme this year was Tailgate for the Cure. Rather than do an individual cooking contest like usual, the "chefs" this year were divided into teams of four, and each team put on its own tailgate. We also moved the event outside -- a gamble in Indiana in October! But, thankfully, we've had beautiful, warm weather lately and it worked out perfectly. The teams fixed ribs, sliders, grilled pizza, potato salad, guacamole... you name it.

The event was a big success, raising more than $10,000 for the cause. It seemed like everyone loved being outside, so I hope the weather is as kind to us next year if we do it again!
