SAGA July Cook-Off a big success


It was a full house with standing room only at Wet Willy’s on Wednesday July 17th, for the monthly SAGA Humane Society cook-off. This month’s theme featured summer salads and there were tasty entrees that combined watermelon and cheese, to veggie, chicken, pasta and even bacon. A total of eight different salads were entered in this month’s cook-off.

The demand for tickets to accommodate the huge turnout sold well over 65 servings. In a span of about 15 minutes all tickets were sold out as everyone hoped to feed their taste buds on a variety of summer salads. Each person that purchased a ticket also had the opportunity to vote for their choice of best entree for the evening.
After all the votes were in and counted, Alexis Gonzalez captured first place with his orange chicken pasta salad. Second place was awarded to Lone Star Grill with their entrée of watermelon, feta cheese and mint salad. Third place went to the host of the evening, Wet Willy’s with their bacon, lettuce and tomato salad.

Following the announcement of the winners, SAGA also conducted three raffles for gift certificates courtesy of MELT, Waraguma and El Divino who generously donated to the society’s efforts. According to the organizers all the money raised at the monthly cook-offs go to the SAGA Human Society who offer animal care for the island. For only $1 SAGA is able to feed daily either a dog or a cat currently under their care at the facility.
