McCord’s Homemakers Club will host chilli cook-off Hopewell Community Center Jan. 30
The McCord’s Crossroads Homemakers Club will host a Chili Cook-Off on Saturday, Jan. 30, from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. at the Hopewell Community Center at McCord’s Crossroads, 7290 County Road 16, Centre.
Anyone interested in entering the competition is encouraged to contact Lynn Petty by Jan. 29.
Contestants should plan to deliver prepared chili in a large heated container to the community center at 2 p.m. on Jan. 30. Judging will take place at 3 p.m., before the doors open to the public at 4 p.m.
All proceeds from the Chili Cook-Off will benefit the restoration of the former Hopewell Church building.
Club president Edna Jennings reports, “The homemakers club is committed to completing the Hopewell restoration project in 2016, as the building is in its 100th year. With the exterior being restored, the club now focuses on the interior surfaces. We are so close to reaching our goal, but fund raising is critical to seeing the project through to completion. We hope the community will come out to the Chili Cook-Off and the events that are planned over the next few months to lend their support to the Hopewell project.”
Doors open at 4 p.m. for the Chili supper that includes chili, cornbread, homemade dessert and drink for a suggested donation of $7. Or, a $10 donation package includes the supper, raffle tickets, and sampling of competition chili for people’s choice award.
The homemakers club has planned an afternoon of good fellowship, food, door prizes, raffles and entertainment – all while helping a good cause. Contact event coordinator Lynn Petty, at 706-7671612 for more information.
