ST. LOUIS—Local senior living communities are to hold a salsa tasting competition on Tuesday, Oct. 15 to raise money for Cardinals Care, the foundation of the St. Louis Cardinals dedicated to improving the lives of children in the community.
The competition was inspired by the Cardinals’ infielder, Matt Carpenter, whose beloved salsa retails at Schnucks supermarkets. Residents from six St. Louis-based retirement communities teamed up with their staff to create a unique salsa recipe per community. One community used vegetables grown by residents in their community garden, while others received donations from nearby farmer’s markets. The residents took the lead on all aspects of the competition entry, including recipe creation, name, and label design. The public will have the chance to taste each salsa entry at the event.
Local celebrities will judge the six different salsas in three areas: taste, presentation, and label design. Celebrity Judges include radio personalities Joe Sonderman and Anthony Stalter; Asher Benrubi (The Smash); The Honorable Sandy Lucy, Mayor of Washington, Mo., and Simone Esters, Miss Missouri 2019.
