Preparations are underway for the 7th annual SCV Charity Chili Cook-Off, and organizers are looking for sponsors and contestants. The event will take place at 6 p.m. on Thursday, March 21, 2019 at The Oaks Club at Valencia (formerly the TPC).
Entrants will share their favorite chili recipes for a chance to be crowned a winner. The fee to enter the chili contest is $125, and there will be 45 contestants. Prizes will be awarded to the top three chilis in the People’s Choice and Judges Choice categories. For more information, visit scvcharitycookoff.com.
Each year event proceeds benefit a local nonprofit organization. Funds raised through the 2019 cook-off will go to two local animal shelters: Shelter Hope Pet Shop and St. Bonnie’s Sanctuary/Lange Foundation.
“With an abundance of homeless animals needing safe shelter and care, we hope our next chili cook-off will be even more successful than in years past,” said event co-founder Nicole Stinson. “It has been humbling to watch this event gain popularity each year, and I am excited to see what’s in store this time.”
Attendees will enjoy live entertainment, silent and live auctions and a 50-50 opportunity drawing.
The event begins at 6 p.m. and general admission is $25 online until February 14. After February 14 tickets will be $30. A limited number of advance-purchase VIP tickets are available for $65, which includes early entry at 5:30, one drink ticket, VIP area access, VIP parking, a swag bag and VIP hors d’oeuvres.
