Saturday, October 11, 2014 will be our 21st annual Chili Challenge.

This is our main fundraising event.  It takes place on one day but many meetings and days for preparation.  All members help in one way or another.  We usually have 10 or more cookers that compete.  We recruit 7 judges from the area.  The 1st prize wins $200, 2nd $100 and 3rd wins $50.  We also have a showmanship award for $25 that is presented to the cookers that decorate their booth and dress according to their theme.  There are 25 or more craft booths set up inside and out of the Expo Hall in Robert's Park.  Our local Altrusans sell our own recipe of chili and serve it with hot dogs, coney dogs, chips, pies and drinks throughout the day.  All profit from this is used in our community by donating to various non-profit organizations, 2 $1000 scholarships, and for various literacy projects.
