|O Abundant Ones,
We had the biggest and best Pepper Festival ever...we thank all of you for making it happen. A huge collaboration. Big Gratitude! We ate a lot of the most amazing local food all with the pepper theme...these Chefs and Brewers are extremely creative.
Did everyone get Frank Stasio's autograph that wanted it?
We so appreciate WUNC and their role this year....
Thanks to all the Sponsors, Chefs, Non-Profits, Volunteers, Family Members, Farmers, Brewers, Winery, Soda(rie) and thanks attendees for coming out! Oh! Thank you Pepper Gods for perfect weather!!
We are still tallying up things, but early indicators are the following:
- Approximately 1300 folks were in attendance (includes everyone!)
- 341 pounds of peppers were purchased from the local farmers for a total of $1576.
- 100 Volunteers helped put on the event.
- A lot of children really enjoyed themselves
- 100 gallons of Smith water was drunk...we ran out!
Special thanks to our photographers and videographers Sonia Katchian, Jonathan Young, and Ash Crowe!
