Chili for Charity

chili-for-charityNow in its fifth year, the Rotary Club of Winter Park has established its Chili for Charity event as the premier chili cook-off event in Central Florida featuring creative chili dishes by popular restaurants and other contenders. All entries are served with a “Winter Park attitude.”

Participants compete for the coveted Peoples’ Choice award and have their dishes evaluated by a select panel of judges.

Guests also enjoy the funky smooth jazz sounds of The Papa Jack Express. Drinks and a silent auction 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 $685,000 to charities serving the Winter Park community.
