THE GREAT CHILI COOK-OFF is a fundraiser of the faith communities group, Mid-County Homeless Coalition (MCHC). All proceeds will be used to support the homeless men, women, and children of Aptos, Soquel, and Capitola area. MCHC is especially interested in addressing the need for showers.
Faith Communities are invited to accept the challenge, turn up the heat and compete in the Great Chili Cook-Off! Prizes and bragging rights will be awarded in three categories: beef chili, meat other than beef chili, and veggie chili. Winners will be decided by People's Choice vote (bribery allowed!) and Blind Taste Test by celebrity judges. There will also be special honors for Most Spirited Chili Team.
Entry ticket includes chili tastings, cornbread, and dessert.
Live music will be provided by The Coastal Band (formerly Farmer's Market String Band), and cover band, B Movie Kings.
