On Sunday, May 24 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. Bay Port Fish Company held a Celebrity Fish Chowder Challenge.
Seven of the region's most popular media stars partnered with local restaurants to raise funds for their chosen charity and a chance to win the first annual Celebrity Chowder Challenge, sponsored by the Bay Port Fish Company.
Each celebrity team prepared their own version of a fish or seafood chowder which was evaluated by a panel of local judges.
Samples were sold to the public for a nominal fee to support local charities and to determine the winner of the People's Choice Award and bragging rights for the year.
