Knights kick off a new fraternal year at K of C Museum

Saturday, August 6, 2016 was a great day for many Knights and their families at the Knights of Columbus Museum in New Haven. Immediate Past Grand Knight George Ribellino and Immediate Past Financial Secretary Anthony Armentano spoke about Council 14360’s numerous achievements over the last fraternal year, including the recognition it received for its community outreach and the Star Council award that the council earned. New Grand Knight Scott Criscuolo addressed the council on the exciting upcoming fraternal year! Great job by all!

Chili for Charity

The battle was waged on Reef Road in Fairfield, but the champion prevailed.

There was a lot of competition from many other fine cooks, but the 2015 Chili Knight Out “Chili Cook-Off” champion came through again.

On a rainy day, Knights of Columbus St. Matthew Council 14360 held their Second Annual Chili Cook Off fundraiser at Saugatuck Sweets in Fairfield. Nine Knights from the council and two guests cooked 11 chili entries, ranging from super spicy to scrumptiously sweet.  Defending Champion and Past Grand Knight George Ribellino did it again. With more than 35 votes counted by the sampling judges for the best, hottest and best-named recipes, Ribellino, council supporters Nona Rudd & Nadia Cossuto, and Grand Knight Scott Criscuolo won the best chili awards respectively.   In addition, William Scholl won best-named chili and Nona Rudd won for hottest chili.  More importantly, a total of $500 in donations was collected and will be donated to Al’s Angels.

“Once again I was happy to see the number of chili cooks & judges who came out on a rainy day to help our Knights of Columbus council support Al’s Angels during our second annual chili cook-off, said Committee Chairman Erric Moretti. “The competition this year was truly fierce and it’s amazing the amount of support that we receive from the community when we hold a “fun-raiser” like this one. It’s even better when we present a sizable donation to a charity such as Al’s Angels.”

Criscuolo was pleased with everyone’s effort, despite the wet weather. “The weather worked against us, but instead of quitting we banded together and adapted to the surroundings and still put on a great event for both Al’s Angels, the council and the Fairfield community.

The mission of Al’s Angels is to provide holiday meals and gifts to children battling cancer, rare blood diseases and severe financial hardship.  Please visit www.alsangels.org for more information.
