Respectful rivals South Bend and Mishawaka affectionately dueled off in 2017’s Melee in Michiana. Despite South Bend’s best efforts, Mishawaka’s Mayor Pete Buttigieg and his team of volunteers planted their feet firmly at the city’s Panera Bread and Pegg’s Restaurant and hauled in kettles full of charitable donations, narrowly beating South Bend.  Together, the opponents raised over $1,600 for charity in 12 honorable hours.
