St. John’s Lutheran Church, located at 157 Lady’s Island Drive, Beaufort will host their 5th Annual Community Chili Cook-Off on Saturday, February 7 from 5-7 p.m. This event is held each year to benefit local community organizations. This this year’s cook-off will benefit Help of Beaufort, which provides emergency assistance to persons in the Beaufort community with food, clothing, financial needs. Other churches in the community participate in the event. Anyone in the community is invited to enter the competition. Local “celebrity judges” award fun prizes to the three best, as well as “most unusual” chili recipes. In addition, the judges award a “pastor’s prize” to the best chili made by one of the participating congregations. Finally, a People’s Choice award is given to the crowd favorite. In 2014, 32 different pots of chili were entered.
All who attend are asked to make a minimum donation of $5. 100% of these proceeds will go to Help of Beaufort. Come out and join in the fun and eat some great chili! For more details, including information about how to enter your chili recipe, go to www.StJohnsBeaufort.org.
