Firefighter Chili Challenge 2009

Don’t you just LOVE chili?  I do!

And I love chili even more when it can raise funds to benefit the United Phoenix Firefighters Association.

Chili Challenge 2009

Last year, firefighters from all over Maricopa County and valley restaurants gathered to compete in the First Annual United Phoenix Firefighters Chili Challenge. The cookoff was created to bring firefighters from around the valley to cook up some great chili, have fun, and more importantly, raise money for the Firefighter Charities.

You – and all of your friends and family! – are invited to come out and enjoy live music and sample all of the chili. The event costs $10 to get in, and admission includes $10 worth of chili and drink tickets. 100% of the proceeds go to United Phoenix Firefighter Charities. Teams consist of firefighters from all over the county along with different local restaurants and other non profits eager to take home the gold.

Here’s the scoop:

2009 Chili Challenge

11 am to 7 pm
Downtown Phoenix
Washington Street -between 1st and 4th Avenue

The firefighters from Fire Station #10 (my fire station!) are coming together to make the very best chili possible and we are sure to win the gold!  The theme of our display booth is the craps game “hard ten” so look for the booth with the dice!  We are confident that our red chili is the best!

So, if you like red, green or cowboy chili, music and beer…this is the place for you! Saturday will be a fun day to sample all the different chilis and enjoy yourself knowing that we are all supporting a great cause!

Please check out the United Phoenix Firefighters Association for more info on the fund raising event.

I look forward to seeing you!
