Calling all cooks!

Prominent local area personalities have been selected to sit on the Judges Panel for this event.

Have you been told your chili is the best? Have you and your family been bragging about an old chili recipe with that special secret ingredient? Let our Judges Panel decide. Trophies for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will definitely back up those bragging rights! The American Legion Auxiliary is the largest non-profit women’s organization supporting our veterans, military and their families. Trophies and  Awards, door prizes, drawings and raffle will be presented during the dinner.  

Sample some great chili, delicious breads, various side dishes to choose from, including desserts and beverages. If you’re entering your chili in the cook-off, bring your family, friends and neighbors to cheer you on. You don’t cook chili? Not a problem! Come enjoy a delicious meal at a great price, while supporting a good cause.
