Chili cook-off to benefit animal shelter

From Staff Reports

The Unicoi County Animal Shelter will host a benefit Chili Cook-Off on Saturday, March 26, from noon to 3 p.m. 

The event will be held at the shelter. Admission is $5, which include a bowl of chili, crackers and a drink. Entry fee for the cook-off is $10 for one person or a team of two individuals. 

Participants in the cook-off can compete in two categories: traditional red (no beans) and homestyle (with beans). Participants can enter both categories, but an entry fee is required for each category.

Attendees will be able to sample each chili in order to make a choice on the bowl they’d like to enjoy.

Although the competition is judged, organizers emphasize that the event is just for fun and to raise funds for a good cause. Chili entered for the contests should be made prior to arrival at the shelter. 

All proceeds from the cook-off will help spay/neuter kittens for adoption.
