Kick off spring by attending the 7th Annual SCV Charity Chili Cook-off. This year’s event benefits the Shelter Hope Pet Shop and St. Bonnies Sanctuary/Lange Foundation. The cook-off begins March 21 at 6 p.m. and will be held at The Oaks Club of Valencia (formally TPC) located at 26550, Heritage View Lane Valencia, Calif. 91381
Attendees will enjoy tasty chilis prepared from 45 local cooks. The event also features live music, dancing, a silent auction, a photo booth, “Kids Korner” and more. General admission is $25 until February 14, and will go to $30. VIP tickets are available in advance for $65, which includes early entry at 5:30 p.m., preferred parking, a drink ticket, souvenir glass, swag bag and hors d’oeuvres provided by Salt Creek Grill and Wolf Creek Restaurant. VIP tickets are only available online in advance.
“Every year the SCV Charity Chili Cook-off gets bigger and more popular,” said event co-chair Steve Portaro. “This year we’re hoping to make a significant contribution to both animal rescues.
In addition to dozens of exceptional chilis, a few vendors are setting up to sell their goodies and help with a contribution to the charities. Also featured will be The Lucy Pet Surf Wave Machine, where participants will be able to see dogs surf and ride the waves. Both charities will have rescues on site looking for their new best friends and loving homes, so guests can actually start the adoption process right there and then.
“Nothing brings the Santa Clarita community together quite like the annual SCV Charity Chili Cook-off,” said event founder Nicole Stinson. “We are really excited about this year’s event, it’s also a chance for our families to get to know each other, and network, and it’s all to support two great charities.”
