City Star is hosting a chili cook-off to establish the best chili maker in Berthoud for 2019 and benefit RAFT. Red and green chilies welcome. The winner will be chosen by People’s Choice. Restaurants and individuals are invited to compete. Click for contestant registration form (also available to pick-up in the City Star taproom and Berthoud Area Community Center).
Submit chili registration forms to the Berthoud Area Community Center, City Star Brewing, or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Entrants will be advised of their inclusion in the contest on Friday the 18th. Contestants are asked to provide two and ½ gallons of warmed chili in a crock-pot or other food warmer along with any toppings that they wish to accompany their dish. Directions for delivery or pick up are on the registration form. (click for chili registration form)
Tickets for sampling all of the chili entries and voting on the Best of Berthoud will be sold in the taproom the night of the contest for $10 each. We will also be contributing $1 to RAFT for each brew sold. Pennies on the Track will be providing music for the occasion and assuring a festive evening.
All proceeds will go to RAFT (Rural Alternative for Transportation) — a volunteer driver program for seniors and adults with disabilities who reside within the Berthoud Fire Protection District. RAFT is a program under Berthoud Golden Links, Inc., a 501(c)3 charitable non-profit begun in 2014. RAFT is celebrating its 5th Anniversary of service this January 2019.
