The 5th Annual Chili Cookoff is a simple yet powerful way to support Texas Humane Heroes’ life-saving mission while putting chili cooking or tasting skills to the test.CJ’s Catering is sponsoring the Chili Cookoff by providing guests with all-you-can-eat chili at this year’s event. Guests will also enjoy tasting all of the contestants’ chili and help choose the top three winners. A $10 donation for adults or $5 for children ages 10 and under provides guests with all-you-can-eat chili, tasting of contestants’ chili, and a beverage. A DJ and face painter will also be on hand at the event to ensure that a good time is had by all.

Chili chef contestants are encouraged to register in advance at www.TexasHumaneHeroes.org/chili for an entry in the cooking competition at $30 per entry. Terrific prizes will be awarded for the top three chili chefs! Sponsorships are also available for local businesses to join in the community-wide event, helping to support the organization’s No Kill mission and attract future customers.

“We are so excited about our 5th Annual Chili Cookoff, as this event has always been such a great success and the perfect winter activity to help keep you and family warm!
