Who are Burlington’s heroes? 


Last Week Chopps American Bar & Grill and the Boston Marriott Burlington held the 3rd Annual Chopps Champions, a community-wide contest to salute those who make a difference in Burlington. 


There were winners in six categories who were nominated and voted in by members of the communities. Those categories were Technology, Healthcare, Education, Businesses, Military/First Responders and Community. 


The winners received dinner for four at Chopps American Bar & Grill, 100,000 Marriott points, and the Boston Marriott Burlington donated $1,000 to each winner's designated charity.
