Gingerbread House winners

The annual Holiday Gingerbread Village was a smashing success. The incredible gingerbread houses were on display November 21 - 30, 2008, and we've still had people calling asking that the display be extended through December in 2009!

The winners were as follows:

Chef Marvin Herrera, Executive Chef of the Augusta Country Club, won the People's Choice Award. Hundreds of patrons cast their votes for their favorite gingerbread house over a period of 10 days. This depiction of the Old Club House won People's Choice!

Most Artistic was won by Tereasa Lily of Tres Bon Catering for her creation of the Augusta National Golf Club.

Brigette Pedroza won Third Place for her precise recreation of the Appling Courthouse in Appling, GA.

Casey Igel of Augusta won Second Place for her depiction of the Church of the Good Shepherd:

And Jennifer Mooney of Midville won first place (the third year in a row!) for her depiction of Williams Antiques, located in Waynesboro, Georgia:
