This Saturday marks the 18th Annual Great Chili Cookoff fundraiser for Mobile Meals from noon until 4 p.m. at Stranahan Great Hall on Heatherdowns.
While there will be concessions available, the main focus will be on the various chili entries in the amateur, corporate, media, restaurants and salsa categories - all of which will be available for tasting and voting.
Awards will be given for the People's Choice (based upon the voting by attendees), and the Judge's Choice. Awards will be announced at 3 p.m.
Additionally, there will be entertainment, chef demonstrations and the Black Swamp Cruisers' Classic Car Show.
All proceeds go to support the Mobile Meals Home Delivery program which provides over 600 meals each day to "enable the elderly, ill, disabled, homebound, the convalescing and all those who need assistance with diet and meal preparation to remain in their own homes and retain the dignity and independence they treasure."
My husband and I have been involved with Mobile Meals since 1993. It's a fantastic organization and I hope you'll support their efforts by attending this fun - and delicious - event!
