Calling all chili cooks and tasters! Mark your calendar for the second annual Monteagle-Sewanee Rotary Club Chili Cook-Off on March 7 in the Cushman Room at the Bairnwick Women’s Center on Mississippi Avenue on campus. If you consider your chili recipe extraordinary or just plain good, then enter as a team and find out. Entry fees are $50 for community teams and $25 for student teams.
Committee judging begins at 11:30 a.m. Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place. Registration forms and rules are online at <monteaglesewaneerotary.org>.
Tickets are $10 adults/$5 students with tasting from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Included in the ticket price is chili tasting, corn bread, a cold beverage and a vote for the People’s Choice best chili. Tickets are available from Rotary Club members and will be sold at the door. Please make plans to attend.
Proceeds from this fundraiser provide funding for the Haiti Initiative, helping support student research interns who work with Haitian technicians and Haitian families assisting with tree reforestation of the devasted Central Plateau and the rebuilding of arabica coffee industry; Rotary International’s Heart to Heart projects in the heart of Mexico; and a travel scholarship for an international student to attend the Sewanee Summer Music Festival.
