8 reasons why you should come to the PMC chili cookoff
- For $15, you can eat yourself silly with chili.
The Plaza Midwood Chantilly Chili Cookoff is an intense competition which means you’re guaranteed to sample some extraordinary recipes. Red chili, green chile, chicken chili, veggie chili–you name it. You can sample them all for a great price. (Make sure to ask for small samples, though, or else you’ll fill up too fast. What if you end up missing some? That would be tragic!) While the judges make their decisions for the official categories, you get to vote for “Taster’s Choice”, the unofficial winner that is chosen by the crowd. So you can’t say your vote never counts for anything . . . .
- It’s the PMC Chili Cookoff‘s 10th annual year.
Ten years. That is a very long time. When something’s been around for ten years, that means it’s worth checking out. And this event just gets better and better, trust me.
- Live music!
Local bands will play all day and into the evening. Time to get some toe tapping in . . . . And it will be good chili-eating music. Good ol’ southern rock and maybe a little country mixed in.
- Children 5 and under eat free.
You’ll be asked for a donation for your 5-and-unders, but it’s for a great cause, right?? And if you’ve got kids between the ages of 6 and 12, they will only cost you $10. That’s probably the first time those kids have given you a break in a long time, huh?
- There’s a raffle with prizes.
Who doesn’t like prizes? Sure, you claim you never win. But there’s always a first time!
- Plaza-Midwood and Chantilly are really cool neighborhoods.
This part of Charlotte is eclectic and funky, with a mix of architectural styles and tastes. Spend some time driving through these charming neighborhoods–you won’t be disappointed!
- Homemade desserts. ‘Nuff said.
- There’s no easier way to have fun and support hospice at the same time!
Y0ur support at this event means so much for our community. The Plaza Midwood Chantilly Chili Cookoff has raised close to $100,000 for Hospice & Palliative Care Charlotte Region during the nine years it’s been held. That translates to a significant number of individuals who have had access to our quality end-of-life services at a time when they were needed most. Bet you didn’t know that eating chili could benefit mankind. Usually it’s quite the opposite! (Hey, we never said it would benefit your stomach! But thanks for taking one for the team!)
The Plaza Midwood Chantilly Chili Cookoff takes place this Saturday, October 12, from 12pm until around 6pm. You best better come hungry! For more information, visit http://www.pmccookoff.com.
