The Dilworth/South End Chili Cook–off is a family event with games and fun for all ages. Attendance & donations have exceeded each proceeding year, making going into this year’s event so exciting! We saw 1500 guests at our 8th annual event and raised $18,000 dollars for the Parkinson Association of the Carolinas, Taste of the NFL to benefit Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina, The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer and Alzheimer’s Association! This year we will be donating the proceeds to The Taste of the NFL (Second Harvest Food Bank, Purple Heart Homes,  to Alzheimer’s Association and to the charity of choice for Station #2 Charlotte Fire Department.

Making appearances this year will be Sir Purr, Chubby Checker & Blaze running around like cats & dogs! Our celebrity judges (Carolina Panther J.J. Jansen & Retired Pro Basketball star & Sports Analyst Mike Gminski – along with several other surprises) will be ready to taste more than 30 very different and unique recipes before choosing our winners. Brett Jensen of Fox Sports will return to emcee this amazing event, announcing our local bands, raffle winners and of course, our chili winners!

For the kids, we will have bounce houses & pumpkin painting by Wine & Design. For the kid in all of us, cornhole tournaments and much more. We are committed to making this a green event again this year and are pleased that Republic Services has signed on to make that possible. Local breweries will be on hand serving their finest beer, and Jimmy Bookout will be pouring wine from our good friends at Robert Foley Vineyards.

It’s our Sponsors that make this wonderful event such a success.
