UTICA, N.Y. - Utica's famous food was on display at Utica College's Meatball Madness. The annual meatball frenzy was held at the Harold T. Clark Athletic Center.

Just over a dozen of local vendors packed into the gymnasium each offering their own unique meatball flavor.

All of the proceeds from the event benefited Abraham House. They provide families who have terminally ill members with a safe home and support from their staff.

Just like every year, there was a judging panel that gave out categorical awards to the vendors with the best meatball.

Executive Director of Abraham House Gina Ciaccia said that the secret ingredient for putting on this event every year was the people.

"I think the secret ingredient is that meatballs are so uniquely Utica, and that this community comes out to support this great event and our home," said Ciaccia.

Here are the results from the judging panel:
