Either way, we got to spent some quality time with the Pediatric doctors of Childrens Memorial in Chicago. So contest aside, what you did in rasing that money for others is awesome. So a personal thank you from my family and my son.
Could not be said better. Most all of us go into something non-BBQ realted for our livings and family come Monday morning.
Put aside the contest, interaction, and experience....and if all you're left with is the worthwhile cause alone. We've ALL won. No more to say.
