Ok I hate to do this but I just can't help myself. hey its for a good cause at least.
I know its not BBQ but its still a topic near and dear to many of us. CHILI!
This upcoming Saturday (May 29th) starting at 12:00 to 8:00 PM is the The York Jaycee's 16th annual CHILI COOKOFF. It's held at the York Fairgrounds, in York, PA. Just a few minutes from Rt 30 and I 83. Tickets are $5 in advance or $6 at the gate. Purchase your advance discount tickets by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 717-767-9111. (Tell them you're for Team Hot Stuff) Children under 12 are free Paid ticket holders receive 2 free chili sample tickets at the gate Additional Sample tickets are sold as well Gates open at noon Awards announcement at 4:00 p.m. Entertainment will go until 8:00 p.m. This year's entertainment includes UUU, Greg Naylor & Friends, and Kenton & Vito. All great bands! Chili available while supplies last!
This will be my second year participating in the event. And it is alot of fun. The Jaycees are a local clearinghouse if you will for charitable donations. All proceedes from the event go to the charity of each teams choice. My charity will again be the American Cancer Society. Last year my team placed fourth ("prize money" is an additional donation to your charity) and we raised almost $1000.
The event is also sponsored by Bud Light so there will be beer and sodas and other food and some games for kids as well as the bands playing throughout the day.
So if you're looking for something to do this Saturday and you're in the area, stop by and check it out. It really is a fun day.
I appologize for the shameless plug.
