Are you coming to the Cook-off? Consider being a volunteer.


We could not make this event possible if it were not for volunteers like you. If interested in donating your time to this community fundraiser please email us at to register for the event.

Volunteers receive free admission, a Chili Cook off volunteer shirt, and beverage tokens for donating their time.

All day Volunteers work from 11 to 5 and will have choice of location as position last. Part day volunteers will be either 10:30 till 2:30 or 1:30 till 5:30
