The public is invited to judge entries in the sixth annual Chili and Soup Cook-Off, sponsored by the Women's Club of Bowling Green, American Association of University Women, and Zonta.
The event, which started as part of Winterfest in 2008, is scheduled for Saturday in Veterans Hall (south room) in City Park, beginning at noon.
For a donation of $5, each person may taste all entries in three categories: (1) organizations, (2) individuals, and (3) businesses (restaurants). Entrants have been asked to prepare a gallon of their recipe for judging.
The top three vote-getters in each of the categories will receive a special prize, and all entrants will receive a certificate, noting their achievement of creating a tasty product ranging from mild to "flame thrower."
Two organizations tied for "best" chili last year-the Kiwanis Club of Bowling Green and the BG Exchange Club.
All chilis may be tasted with votes to be cast for the "best" in the three categories. Tasting will be from noon to 2 p.m. followed by ballot counting and awarding of prizes.
There also will be a bake sale of cookies, brownies, and other baked goods. Donations will be accepted for these items.
All three sponsoring organizations plan to use the proceeds for their scholarship and community service projects.
Serving as the coordinating committee are members from the three organizations, Deborah Wooldridge and Beth Hofer, AAUW; Michelle Grigore, Zonta; and Joan Gordon, Women's Club.
Additional information is available by calling (419) 354-6224 or (419) 354-6648.
