5th Annual Divide Chili Cook Off - ON HOLD
ON HOLD DUE TO COVID 19 - AIMING FOR MARCH 2021
For The Kids will host its 5th annual Chili Cook Off, as a Fly-In at the Georgetown Airport this year.
The Georgetown Divide has a gorgeous airport, that used to be host to many fly-ins and fun events for adults and kids alike.
With the tremendous growth of the Chili Cook Off over the last few years we talked about how we could create more value for kids (and parents alike) and are excited to announce the new event date and location, offering many more youth components including exciting events for kids like the Young Eagles program, CalStar and many other vendors involved in the wonderful world of flying, along with local vendors such as Cool Beerwerks and live music.
Local businesses and individuals will compete for bragging rights to the “Best Chili on the Divide,” all proceeds benefit For The Kids, a division of Divide Ready by 21.
Contestants are to supply 4-5 gallons of homemade chili (commercial kitchen available for use for sanitation purposes) and serve it at the festival. For The Kids will supply sampling cups, and spoons. Attendees to the festival can purchase a round of chili for any donation. All voters receive a four-ounce sampling of each contestant’s chili, salad and cornbread.
Winners are selected based upon the highest number of votes, and first, second and most creative will be awarded. In addition to bragging rights, winners will receive a trophy for placement at their business or home.
All donations and involvement in the cook off are charitable. Proceeds from this event are used to purchase winter clothing for children in need as well as water safety initiatives.
