Hey guys! It’s official…

Our very own ACF-CASA web services liaison, Jonathan Revies, will once again be competing in the charity cooking competition at the annual Southern Arizona Wine Growers Festival. Last year, he competed in the chili challenge and took home the prize of People’s Choice, beating other professional cooks from all over the country. This year, he is honored to accept the challenge once again and defend his crown.

Held at Kief-Joshua Vineyards in Sonoita, Arizona, the festival features some of the outstanding wines of the southeast part of the state. In addition, there will be food, music, vendors and, of course, the food competition. The dates of the festival are April 18th and 19th, 2015. Due to school and work conflicts, Jonathan will only be competing on Sunday, the 19th. Please come on out, enjoy the festival, support the local charities and vote for him to bring home the trophy once again!
