2019 Chili Cook-off Fundraiser

Some Like it HOT!

Please join us for the RISE for Families Chili Cook-off fundraiser, including live music, vendor booths, children's activities, and a silent auction. Chili entries will be judged by the Leander Professional Firefighters Association, with all proceeds benefiting RISE for Families. We are reaching out to local organizations to make the event a fun, positive, and valuable experience for our community.

Update: Jan 18

We're full! We are honored to have so much interest in this event. With 16 chili entries, registration is now closed. We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!

Update: Jan 16

Rain, shine, sleet, or snow, this event is happening Saturday, Jan 19, 11a-3p. We'll have heaters, hot chili, hot dogs, and cold drinks. Pack a jacket and come on out to support our gracious vendors and vote for Leander's best chili!
