Have a Safe Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

Community Relations Coordinator Dale Amundsen will bring the Washelli hearse to participate in Bothell’s Safe Halloween. Make sure to say hello to our costumed Washelli volunteers; the hearse will be in the middle of the intersection of 101st Ave NE and Main Street in downtown Bothell on October 31st. The City of Bothell barricades off two blocks of Main Street for the estimated 1800-2000 ghosts, goblins, witches, and other trick-or-treaters. The event goes for two hours starting at 5:30 PM on Sunday evening.

We are proud to be an annual part of this community tradition to provide a safe, easy, and candy-filled way to celebrate Halloween. All activities are free unless otherwise noted. For more information, visit www.ci.bothell.wa.us or contact City of Bothell Parks & Recreation at 425.486.7430

Evergreen Washelli at Bothell Hosts the Fourth Annual Chilifest

Chilifest 2010

Chilifest 2010

The Fourth Annual Chilifest was another success as 11 chefs competed for the attention of judges and the 150 attendees.

Held on October 7th at our Bothell funeral home, Chilifest was a partnership between Washelli, the Greater Bothell Chamber of Commerce and HopeLink, a local food bank.  Judges included Tim & Victoria Hunter, Rev. Tor Berg and Mike McNamee.  Attendees could vote for the Peoples’ Choice award with donations of food or cash to Hopelink.  Local radio station KOMO interviewed our community relations coordinator Dale Amundsen that morning about the gastronomical event.

Winners of the juried categories were Richard Olson and Susan Gardner of OlsonDesign in the Green Bean (vegetarian) category (a pumpkin-based concoction); Leeann Tesorieri of Country Village for the Mr. Meaty Award; the Burnt Spoon was awarded to Shirley King at the CarePlus Medical Center; and the Judges’ Choice Award went to Christina Parish from Kenmore Self Storage for her “Witches Brew”.

Richard and Susan also garnered the most votes in the Peoples’ Choice award for their “Chilikin” chili.

We are proud to report that quantities of Rolaids, Alka-Seltzer and Beano were on hand for all who tasted.

“Pictured are Seahawks fan Julie Cosgrove of J2J Creative discussing her “Tailgatin’ Chili” with an attendee and Judy Gratton of RE/MAX Town Center serving her “Chiquita Chili” at last Thursday night’s Greater Bothell Chamber of Commerce Chilifest at Evergreen Washelli Funeral Home in Bothell. In the background with Gratton are Brad and Lisa Havens of Forte Communications (“Bar H’ Hatch Chili”). Cosgrove mixed bratwurst, beans and peppers into her chili. Gratton’s concoction featured pork and bananas. Winners were: Evergreen Washelli’s “Meaty Man’s Chili” (Mr. Meaty); Bastyr University’s “Bastyr’s Bodacious Beans” (Green Bean); Chateau at Bothell Landing’s “Lip-Licking Green Chili” (Burnt Spoon); and Three Cups of Tea’s “Not Just Another Chicken Chili” (Judges’ Choice). Jennifer Armenta’s “Serendipity” won the People’s Choice award. The estimated 180-200 attendees tasted 14 types of chili during the event, which raised $1,000 in cash and food for Hopelink.”

Evergreen Washelli’s Second Annual Hot Rods, Hot Dogs & Motorcycles was co-hosted by our Bothell funeral home and the First Lutheran Church in downtown Bothell on a beautiful Saturday, June 27, 2009. Hot Dogs & Hot Rods is a cars, bikes, community picnic and safety fair.

Event organizers Roger Steinke from the church and Dale Amundsen, Washelli’s community relations coordinator, got the word out to car enthusiasts from around the area. Classics, vintage, hot rods, specialty, customs and motorcycles came together for a very hoppin’ scene!

The event featured lots of “cruisin’ music” as well. Donations of canned food benefitted the HopeLink food bank’s End Summer Hunger program.

Our thanks go to First Lutheran Church, The Bothell Police Department, and The Bothell Fire Department for their help in bicycle safety fitting, child car seat demonstrations, child fingerprint cards, and gun trigger locks.
