ARE YA' HUNGRY?
It's not too early to start planning the 2015 United Way Chili Festival, which will take place at the Lea County Event Center on Saturday, SEPTEMBER 26, 2015.
Chili will be judged and trophies will be given to the 1st through 5th place finishers. (Wanna help judge? Email Kathryn Eades)
Categories include Ribs, Brisket, Chicken, Dessert and an Open category for items such as Sausage, BBQ, Beans, etc. Trophies will be given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for each of these categories. A $20.00 entry fee will be charged for each category entered.
Each year we encourage each participant to add a game or activity for the kids along with their booth. This continues to be a big draw and many positive comments are always received, as it added fun for the families. We would like to continue to build on this idea, so you are encouraged to come up with creative games or activities for the kids to participate in. Most booths charged for this also and it seemed to work well. Get creative and come up with some unique ideas for the kids.
WE NEED AUCTION ITEMS!
Please also consider donating an item for the big auction under the tent! The auction has always been a big success at the Chili Fest and this year will prove to be no exception. We always need auction items and volunteer assistance. Please email Kathryn Eades for information on the auction.
The event will begin at 11:00 am and will conclude at 3:00 pm with the awards being presented to the winners of each category.
