SCV nonprofits Single Mothers Outreach and the Santa Clarita Food Pantry have been selected to benefit from this year’s 4th Annual Charity Chili Cook-Off set for April 19, event officials announced Wednesday.
Headed by a committee of local professionals, the fourth annual event will feature 40 amateur chefs from throughout the SCV competing for the 2016 trophy for “Best Chili,” as well as a live and silent auction.
“Last year, Santa Clarita’s community members and business professionals came together to spice things up for three local SCV charities,” event officials said. “No one, especially the amateur chefs, expected such rave reviews for their crock-pot chili.”
The 4th Annual Charity Chili Cook-Off will be hosted by this year’s venue sponsor, Wolf Creek Brewery, which event officials said provides for added parking and allows for more creativity in the planning of the cook-off.
Whitening Lightning is set to return as this year’s title sponsor, and local businesses can still sign up to help sponsor the event, with sponsorship levels starting at $250 and going up to $10,000.
There is also still time for amateur chili cooks to enter their secret recipe to be served up to event attendees in April, according to event officials.
