Chili Cookoff for CASA

For several years the Law School community has come together for a Chili Cookoff to support the efforts of Richland County CASA. The proceeds from the $5/person fee is donated to them to help fund extras for their volunteers and the abused and neglected children they represent.

Anyone can enter a crock pot of chili! And we mean anyone!  The “chef” or designee just needs to sign up at:

Bring your hot and bubbly crockpot of goodness  on March 5th at 12:30 to the Perrin Lobby. The Cookoff part comes from the results of the ballots that each attendee gets with their $5 “donation”. The Hottest Chili, the Most Interesting Ingredient Chili and the Best Overall Chili are the three categories. Everyone wins but just three get a trophy!

Just not a good cook?  You can do your part by spreading the word, making a lunch date and eating the chili!
