Middlesex County Sheriff Peter Koutoujian followed through on his promise and delivered New England Clam Chowder to the Waltham-based RECH Beyond Domestic Violence on Tuesday, Jan. 29.
According to the Sheriff’s Office, Koutoujian, who lives in Waltham and used to be one of Watertown's state representative, delivered the chowder to the domestic violence assistance organization to pay off the bet he made with Baltimore Sheriff John Anderson over the outcome of the AFC Championship football game during which the New England Patriots lost to the Baltimore Ravens.
The chowder will go to domestic violence victims.
“REACH is an organization with whom I have had a long affiliation. While I may have lost the wager, there is no reason both REACH and House of Ruth Maryland should not be winners,” Koutoujian said in a statement. “These organizations are on the front lines everyday keeping women and children safe in our communities and I am more than happy, despite the Patriot’s loss, to use this as an opportunity to assist with the important work they do.”
