Best in Paradise Returns for 9th Year

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Paradise may have moved, but you can still find some pretty tasty burgers there.

We're talking about the Best in Paradise event. It pits teams against each other trying to come up with the best cheeseburger and margarita. This is the first year in its 9 year history the competition was held at the Venetian Club in Rockford. All of the money raised goes to the Northern Illinois Food Bank.

"For every dollar we get we turn that into eight dollars’ worth of groceries, or you might look at is as, for every dollar it's six meals we're providing in the community," Jeff Flemming, President of Best in Paradise, said.

The winners go home with $500.
