In 2007, Morris's Grill owner, the late Burt Lipe started it. Four years later, the annual Chili Cook-off is still a Skaneateles tradition.
This year the Charity Chili Cook-off will be held on Sunday, March 13, at the Cedar House Lanes, located on West Genesee Street Road.
There's no entry fee for any cook with a crock pot and a tasty chili recipe as a $5 donation will let non-competitors sample all they want. All proceeds will go directly to the Skaneateles Ecumenical Food Pantry. Everyone attending is also encouraged to bring a canned good or food donation and will be collected for the Pantry.
The feeding frenzy will begin at 1 p.m., and there will be prizes and raffles during the event.
Want to go for the grand prize? Contact Adam Cottrill at 440-4806 or Sean Mott at 685-5117.
For those who over indulge, the lanes will be open to work it off.
