The Dilworth/South End Chili Cook–off is a family event with games and fun for all ages. Attendance & donations have exceeded each proceeding year, making going into this year’s event so exciting! We saw 1800 guests at our 8th annual event and raised $16,000 dollars for the Parkinson’s Association of Carolinas, The Charlotte Fire Department, The Taste of the NFL (Second Harvest Food Bank) and Alzheimer’s Association! This year we will be donating the proceeds to The Taste of the NFL (Second Harvest Food Bank), Our Local Fire Station #2 (charity of their choice), Purple Heart Homes in honor of Veterans Day & Alzheimer’s Association. Making appearances this year will be Sir Purr, Chubby Checker & Blaze running around like cats & dogs! Our celebrity judges will be ready to taste more than 30 very different and unique recipes before choosing our winners. Brett Jensen of Fox Sports will return to emcee this amazing event, announcing our local band, Ollie Take Cover, raffle winners and of course, our chili winners!
For the kids, we will have bounce houses & Painting & Crafts by Wine & Design. For the kid in all of us, corn hole tournaments by Bar Athletes and much more. We are committed to making this a green event again this year and are pleased that Republic Services has signed on to make that possible. Local breweries will be on hand serving their finest beer, and Jimmy Bookout will be pouring wine from our good friends at Robert Foley Vineyards.
