On August 2, 2014, OE Federal Credit Union competed in the Xpress Data, Inc. (XDI) Credit Union Chili Challenge located in Del Mar, California. Team, OE Chili Bytes, represented the credit union and consisted of Albert Leung, Russell Angeles, and Ed Hayes of OE Federal’s IT Networks Department.
Team, OE Chili Bytes, were the winners of OE Federal’s Chili Cook-off that took place at OE Federal’s Open House on May 10, 2014. The winners of the event were given the opportunity to represent the credit union at the Xpress Data, Inc. (XDI) Credit Union Chili Challenge.
The competition in Del Mar was tough, but the OE Chili Bytes stood out with their sweet and spicy style chili placing 3rd out of 10. “We had to remind ourselves to perform at our peak and to not let our supporters down. As a result, we took home third place and a cash prize of $1,500 for charity, which was donated to the American Cancer Society,” said Albert Leung. The OE Chili Bytes showcased their spirit with festive shirts, banners, and creative signs made out of old computer parts along with their delicious chili.
Again, congratulations to OE Federal’s OE Chili Bytes on their outstanding 3rd place finish and the donation to the American Cancer Society. OE Federal Credit Union can’t wait to compete next year!
