Cancer Patient Services will sponsor its 19th annual chili cook-off from 4:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday at the University of Findlay’s Koehler Center.
Admission is $8 for adults and $5 for children ages 6-12. There is no cost for children 5 and younger.
Teams will be competing for the title of best chili, as determined by ticket holders and a panel of celebrity judges.
In addition to chili samples, the event will also feature a raffle and live and silent auctions.
One raffle ticket winner will receive a choice of a trip for a family of four to Disney World or a couple’s stay at St. James Morgan Bay all-inclusive resort in St. Lucia. Either trip is valued at $4,300.
Raffle tickets can be purchased now through 7:45 p.m. Saturday and are $20 each. The winner will be selected at the chili cook-off, but need not be present to win. Tickets can be purchased at Cancer Patient Services’ office, from a board member or committee member, or at Coffee Amici or Trends on Main.
A children’s area will provide activities. The cost is $2 per child.
The event is co-presented by Hancock Federal Credit Union and Blanchard Valley Health System.
Cancer Patient Services offers financial, physical, educational and emotional support for people who live or work in Hancock County and have an active cancer diagnosis.
