Do you have a secret recipe for great chili? Then it’s time to put it all on the line at the 7th Annual Classic Chevy Sugar Land Chili Cook-off. Jerry Parks of Classic Chevy says, “Last year we had over 50 teams participate. This year we are doubling that number to 100! This event will benefit our entire community of law enforcement and fire protection—the Heroes that keep our families safe, sound and protected from the harm and dangers of our times. Honorees and beneficiaries include: The 100 Club, Police and Fire/EMS departments from Sugar Land, Missouri City, Stafford, Richmond, Rosenberg, and Meadows Place, along with the Sheriff and Constable departments of Fort Bend County.”
Not only will our local Heroes benefit in a big way, they’re a huge part of the fun! Jerry says, “Police and Fire/EMS will have their own cook-off competition. As our guest, you will vote on their cooking. Our ‘Goal’ is to raise as much money and goodwill as possible for these Heroes!” Your Heroes (and you!) will also be engaging in four-way tug-of-war contests, arm wrestling, pepper eating and the demolition of a car with sledge hammers. “Once we have the car demolished,” says Jerry, “our fire departments will give a jaws of life demonstration. We’ll also have fire trucks, police cruisers, ambulances and SWAT units on site. This is can not miss fun!”
Bring your “Spicy,” “Specialty,” “Texas” or “Bean” secret recipe to the Classic Chevy Sugar Land Chili Cook-off on Saturday April 8, 2017 from 4-8pm for a chance to win cash, trophies, and serious bragging rights. Teams need to submit a $100 entry fee per category or tent space. Be sure to register in advance, space fills up quickly! Then bring the heat, the sweet, and everything in between…three gallons of your best chili for the competition (which must be cooked on-site in accordance with Health Department regulations), along with decorations for your booth. You can enter in as many categories as you wish! Oh!…and bring the kids for jump houses, hoola hooping, dunking booth, Zumba dancing and many family friendly fun games.
Not so much a Chef, but more a connoisseur taster of fine chili? Forget the cooking that day and enjoy the fabulous food and fun happening at Classic Chevy! Jeff Sebastian, General Manager, says “This is a fantastic opportunity to meet our local Heroes, get to know them, and have fun! Also, experience your cities’ Mayors taking on the honorable judging responsibilities. We’re raffling a couple pistols, an AR-15 and an AK-47…so buy your raffle tickets now! No doubt you will enjoy gallons of Fort Bend’s finest chili. A $2 donation for admission (all benefiting our Heroes) will get you into the event for all the chili you can eat…and don’t forget to bring a pocket full of dollars to vote for your favorites. Can’t wait to see you all there!”
Please note that since the Cook-off has doubled in size, ALL parking will be next door at Sugar Creek Baptist Church.
