Chowderfest Raises Funds For Legal Aid Foundation

The fifth annual Chowderfest fundraiser for the Legal Aid Foundation of Santa Barbara County brought out more than 400 people to the Bacara Resort Sunday afternoon.

Forty-two restaurants, breweries and wineries served up their best chowder, beer and wine.

The money raised will help serve 4,000 low-income residents a year who need legal help.

“It helps us cover our costs. We’re a group of lawyers and paralegals. We help provide legal services for disadvantaged veterans, seniors in the Santa Barbara County area,” said Jason Dominguez, the Legal Aid executive director.

NewsChannel 3 Senior Reporter John Palminteri was a judge for the chowder competition. Three Pickles Deli won for best overall and traditional chowder. The Chase won for best creative chowder.
