Enjoy chili and delicious baked goods while helping raise money for Habitat for Humanity of DeKalb County during the 7th annual Chili Cook-off and Bake Sale Friday, October 29th at the 303 building downtown Smithville.
Serving time will be from 10:30 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. YOU BE THE JUDGE! Purchase your bowl for $5.00 (or $10 for a pottery bowl) and eat all the chili you want from all the teams and vote for your favorite! Come and have lunch. Take out available. All proceeds go to Habitat for Humanity of DeKalb County.
Tecia Puckett Pryor says the chili cook-off and bake sale is one of two major fundraisers held during the year for Habitat. "We just completed our third Habitat house and we'll be starting on our fourth house next year and we'll be choosing a family this winter. So the proceeds from this year's cook-off will be going toward that house."
The event last year raised approximately $3,500
Last year "The Courthouse Gang" from the DeKalb County Officials won the "Best Chili" award, and "Monster Mash" from the DeKalb County Board of Education followed in second place. In the decorating contest, the "Red Hot Chili Papers" from The Smithville Review won first place honors.
