Hey Local Orlando Peeps! There is a great foodie event taking place tonight in Winter Park called Chili for Charity. My good friend and fabulous Retro Rad Chef Emily Ellyn will be a judge to this fun chili cook-off. So come out for a great cause and some tasty eats.
Here is all the info…
Back by popular demand, the Rotary Club of Winter Park presents Chili for Charity. Unlike traditional chili cook-offs, this event features creative chili presentations with a “Winter Park attitude.”
Local restaurants and caterers will compete for the coveted Peoples’ Choice award and have their dishes evaluated by a select panel of judges. Live entertainment by Papa Jack Express, drinks, dessert and a live auction led by American Fundraising Auctions round out the evening at the Winter Park Farmers’ Market.
Net event proceeds will benefit the Rotary Club of Winter Park Foundation, which provides grants to more than 30 local charities each year. Over the last 20 years the club has donated more than $640,000 to charities serving the Winter Park community.
