The largest Great Grill Off ever!

WOW. That’s about all we can say about the 2018 Great Grill Off! We weren’t sure how the rain would affect attendance but God provided the perfect window, and our grill teams responded with a lineup of delicious sliders that rivaled any past Grill Off menu. A record 1200-plus people came out to the Wooster campus of Christian Children’s Home of Ohio and, by the end of the day, we had served more than 2700 burgers and another 448 hot dogs, along with gallons of baked beans, potato salad and macaroni salad. Frito-Lay once again provided tons of chips and let’s not forget the 24 gallons of Hartzler’s Family Dairy ice cream. But the Grill Off is about more than just food. This event is one of the highlights of the summer for families looking for a fun day outside with tons of carnival games, face painting and inflatables.

Check out the infographic for all the great stats from the day. CCHO and our family of ministries would once again like to thank everyone who came despite the sketchy weather reports. We had more than 500 votes in our annual burger contest, with Wooster’s own Spoon Market successfully defending their crown with the awesome Hercules burger, which was no small feat considering the yummy entries from our other community teams (Lone Star Butcher and Deli Shop, Gouda Bar & Grill, and The Pines) and our four CCHO campus teams. A day like this would not be possible without our incredible volunteers, who once again stepped up to make this day unforgettable for all who attended, and special thanks to our generous event sponsors!
