This year’s participants really brought their A-game,” said Carrie Meikle, Lowell General Auxiliary President. “It was so difficult, but so delicious, to choose the best dishes. It was very exciting that two new restaurants won the People’s Choice awards. The Auxiliary, staff and volunteers worked tirelessly to make the evening a great success. Thank you to everyone!”
