"We are looking forward to another great day of good food and fellowship at the chili cook-off," said Nolan Turner, president of Habitat for Humanity of DeKalb County. "We have broken ground for our fourth home and construction is underway," said Turner. "The proceeds from the Chili Cook-off will be used towards building our next house and give us momentum to continue building in DeKalb County. A strong turn out for the chili cook-off will help get us there faster," he said.
Last year, the DeKalb County Board of Education won the "Best Chili" award, and "Blessed and Highly Flavored" from Allen's Chapel and Buckner's Chapel Methodist Churches followed in second place. "Wild West Gang" from the DeKalb County Board of Education also won first place honors in the decorating contest. The event raised $3,000.
