Sign Up: Please sign up on the sign-up sheet provided at the Brandon VFW or you can click hereto sign up. Each contestant is asked to provide a large crockpot of their delicious creation no later than 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 28th at the VFW in Brandon.
Costs: There is no cost to participate and contestants will not be charged an entry fee to compete. This is a free will donation event for the public to attend. We will also be collecting donations via voting at the event. In order to vote for their favorite chili, people who attend will need to place dollar bills in the voting boxes.
Contest: The contestant who has collected the most money in their voting box by 8:00 p.m. will be the winner of the event. That contestant will receive two prizes: a trophy and a $50 raffle ticket, but most importantly, they will receive “bragging rights” for being the winner of the event. There is no second or third place awards, however, anyone who shows up in costume will also be allowed to put their name into a drawing for several small raffle prizes.
Provided: All Styrofoam cups (for chili samples) and small Styrofoam bowls to serve chili, along with napkins, spoons, crackers, Fritos, shredded cheese and sour cream.
