We topped the $100,000.00 mark – thank you all for your great support!!!

The 2016’s teams pulled out all the stops as they drew crowds to eat their fill in support of a worthy cause. A glorious Indian summer day provided the back drop to a successful cook-off.

The owners of Earlyhouse, Bruce and Kathy Stiles, share a special connection to these wonderful charities. In 2007, Kathy was able to donate her kidney to Bruce, who had polycystic kidney disease. Since then, we have heard this powerful story again and again. Successful transplants will always be a miracle, but because of excellant medical care, amazing scientific breakthroughs in technique and medication, and the increase in willing donors, these transplants are a miracle that can happen every day.

The good people that make the chili, and those that enjoy the day here at the chili cook-off help make that happen. Thank you!
