They will be introducing Kidz Jam, a time for music, dancing, face painting and fun geared just for kids of all ages. UVA Medical will also be present here at the cook-off and offer health screenings at no charge to anyone interested!
The charity Chili Cook-off benefits the National Kidney Foundation and the God Doctors Foundation. Goals include promotion of organ donation; supplemental funding for transplant patient care; and, ultimately, the eradication of kidney disease. Proceeds provide patients’ relief from the financial burden of short and long term treatment needs including co pays, medications, and the many costs associated with kidney disease and organ transplant.
Since its beginning, the Chili Cook-off has raised over $100,000 for charity. Local businesses, as always, have been generous in their donations and support. Team spots and sponsor opportunities are still available. Anyone interested in entering can find the rules and registration are online at www.earlyhouse.com – the chili cook-off pages.
