Brentwood, TN: For the second year in a row, Crye-Leike Property Management in Brentwood, Tennessee kicked off December with their Annual Chili Cook Off cowboy themed event. On December 4th, members of the community were invited to their Brentwood office to sample and taste a wide variety of homemade chili selections. Donations of five dollars were asked by each attendee that wished to sample the chili. All of the proceeds were given to support local charity organization Bridges Domestic Violence Center of Franklin.

Chili donations were made by fellow Crye-Leike Property Management team members. Aside from the chili sampling, each pot of chili was judged by a select group of community members to pick the best chili of the day. The judging was based on color, aroma, consistency, taste, and heat. The grand champion winner of the event was Property Inspector, Dave Lewis, who had made his first ever batch of chili.



"Our chili cook off has become a fantastic team building event, and we were excited to join together to support Bridges Domestic Violence Center of Franklin," said Christin Moling, Senior Residential Property Manager.

Over 25 members of the community made an appearance to take part in the chili sampling festivities. Attendees included fellow Crye-Leike team members and their families, CEO and Co-founder of Crye-Leike Real Estate, Harold Crye, stopped in for his share of chili, and even the Brentwood Fire Department made their way over to participate.

"Its always such a pleasure to see our work family come together to help those less fortunate. We had a great time, and appreciate the support of everyone who participated and donated," said Linda Ayers, General Manager of Crye-Leike Property Management. "We will continue taking donations for Bridges Domestic Violence Center of Franklin until December 9th."
