Dearborn Market holds a Chili Cook-off Challenge to benefit the Homeless
Dearborn Market will host a Chili Cook-off Challenge, Sunday January 27th, 2013 from 12:00pm – 3:00pm. All proceeds from the event will go to the Bridges Outreach Program.
Participants can enter their favorite chili recipe online or in-store and then will bring samples of their cooked dish to Dearborn on Sunday, Jan. 27th to be judged by D.J. Luccarelli, Vice President of Dearborn Market, Kathy Logan, from Bridges, as well as a local restaurateur.
Everyone is invited to sample all the chili’s to vote for Customer Choice Award too. Winner of the Chili Challenge will receive a $100 Dearborn Market gift card, an official trophy, and their winning recipe will be featured in Dearborn’s February Almanac. The winning chili will even be offered as a limited time deli special that will be available to purchase throughout the month of February.
There is a $10 entry fee that will be donated directly to the Bridges Program. Dearborn will also be providing participants with a $10 Dearborn Market gift card to be used in purchasing ingredients for their recipe.
The event will take place in the state-of-the-art 11,000 square foot greenhouse, and it is likely to be a delicious afternoon for an incredible worthy cause. For more information, please visit Dearborn’s website.
