Chili Cook-Off

Despite the chill in the air, the crowd enjoyed warm chili at the Rotary Club’s Chili Cook-Off 2018 for the benefit of Natchez Children’s Services. On Saturday, the 10th of November, 21 teams competed with 21 different chili recipes, all of which were tasted by a few hardy souls and the judges.
The prize for the best chili went to first time participant Allied Tree Company. Another first time participant, Delta Sigma Theta, came in second; and Tara Plumbing won third place. The Krewe of Phoenix won the award for best booth, and Netflix and Chili won the People’s Choice Award.
In addition, children slid down the slides and got their faces painted, and people of all ages enjoyed homemade root beer floats. Lucky bidders in the Silent Auction collected trips, a piano concert, restaurant certificates, art work and much, much more.
Natchez Children's Services is grateful to the Rotary Club, all those who worked and served and cooked at the Chili Cook-Off, all who donated items for the Silent Auction, and all who came to eat and play. Thank you for ensuring that Natchez Children’s Services builds on its 202 years of service to offer “Justice, Hope and Healing” to at-risk and abused children.
