Change of venue for Cook County Chili Cook Off Saturday, April 5

How do you like your chili? Do you prefer a bowl of traditional tomato and hot peppers? Or do you like it on the wild side, made with venison and grouse? Do you like a flavorful white sauce or a chili with a hint of chocolate as the secret ingredient? Whatever you like in a bowl of chili, you are likely to find it at the Fifth Annual International Cook County Chili Cook Off on Saturday, April 5 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Evangelical Free Church, instead of St. John's Catholic Church!

Mark your calendar! You don’t want to miss the chili—or the friendly competition amongst the chili chefs. At press time, 17 cooks had signed up for the event.

The cost is just $7 adults and $4 for children, or for $12 chili fans can receive a souvenir mug and a raffle ticket for a chance at some nice prizes.

Proceeds of the event go toward scholarships for Coldwater Foundation, a nonprofit youth leadership development program with an outdoor focus and the Violence Prevention Center educational programs.
