Phoenix Chili Cook Off & Music Festival

Saturday, March 21, 2009

Shoreline Park, North Fort Lewis, WA

7 am to 3 pm 

SOLDIER’S ANGELS HAS GENEROUSLY SPONSORED AN SA TEAM and ADOPTED 2 OTHERS.

This FREE event is designed to bring the community together in a fun and festive atmosphere while showcasing the talents of our soldiers, family members, staff, and community partners. 

  The event is a traditional chili cook off with contestants competing for $1000 in prizes.  Prizes will be given for the Best Chili Overall, Most Unique Chili, Spiciest Chili, and Best Showmanship.  All chili must be prepared on site; no exceptions.  Everyone attending the event will have a chance to vote for their favorite chili and crown the Best Showmanship Award as well as assist in crowning the Best Chili Overall.   

                                             WHAT WE CAN DO TO HELP

Volunteers!  (for help with set up, clean up, face painting, and to cook
side dishes)
Groups/Individuals to “adopt” the chili cook off teams that might not have
money to spend on ingredients. (wounded warriors, etc.) 
Anyone that wants to help with prizes!  We are looking for anything from
trophies to a check that we can give them.
CELEBRITY JUDGES
Soldiers’ Angels is thankful to have angel Wanda as our lead with this event. Here is  an exerpt from her letter to the community, challenging us all to become involved.

Valentine’s day weekend I found out that (The Warrior Transition Battalion) is hosting its first chili cook-off contest on March 21st & although they do not solicit support, I know that they need sponsors for the 20 teams (of 2-4).  So far, they have 4 sponsors.  The sponsorship consists of defraying the cost of the ingredients and needed items for the cook-off with $150.00 per team (each team has to make 2 gallons to feed the masses). Challenge your counterparts in other surrounding cities.  Healthy competition is a good thing for all!!! 
I think they still need judges…hmmm…The competition is even open to civilians, so…I am hopeful that the community will step up in a big way & support these Heroes/Warriors who have risked their lives for the quality of life we enjoy.  This event is an excellent opportunity to raise awareness about the Warrior Transition Battalion (WTB) & other worthy organizations that support our military communities.

I HOPE AS MANY ANGELS AS POSSIBLE WILL GET BEHIND THE WTB AND HELP IN SOME WAY WITH THIS EVENT. EVEN IF IT IS TO SPREAD THE WORD>>IT ALL HELPS! 

      If you’d like to help  and would like further information on this event
EMAIL Julie at soldiersangelswashington@gmail.com  with CHILI in the subject line and I’ll send you the info and Wanda’s Contact information! I think this will be a wonderful event to be involved in. Hope to see you there!
