On Sept. 16, the first “Chili for Charity” chili cook off event will take place at the Kendall County Fairgrounds, 10826 Illinois Route 71, Yorkville.
The event will take place from 1 to 7 p.m., with live music, entertainment for the family, food and drinks, and chili.
During the event individuals and teams will compete to win a first-place prize.
Participants in the cook off will be judged by the crowd and by a panel of judges in two categories – hot and mild – with awards given to the best in each.
Local businesses have been invited to participate as well – as a sponsor, by registering a cooking team, or with a donation.
Tickets for the event can be purchased for $10 at the door with advanced sale tickets available online for $8.
Children 12 years old and younger are free.
All funds raised from the event will be used to support St. Vincent de Paul and the Knights of Columbus. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.chilicharity.org.
