This year the second day of spring is expected to come with some serious heat … hot, chili-pepper heat, that is. Forty five local chefs will share their favorite chili recipes at the 7th Annual SCV Charity Chili Cook-off on March 21 at The Oaks of Valencia Club.
“This fun event has become increasingly popular each year, which really makes a difference for the organizations it has supported over the years,” said event co-CHAIR Steve Portaro. He, along with fellow co-founder Nicole Stinson, expect this year’s event to sell out. Nicole said, “The SCV Charity Chili Cook-off is a great event to meet up after work with your co-workers and friends, AND FAMILY ,to taste some spectacular chili’s, enjoy cocktail, dance, bid on silent auction items and most importantly, raise some money for charity.”
The fee to enter the chili contest is $125. Prizes will be awarded to the 3 Best Chilis. People’s Choice and Judges Choice categories and Best Decorated Booth. For more information, visit www.scvcharitychilicookoff.com.
