Chili Cook-off at Facilities Management a Great Way to End a Chilly Week

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Been cold enough for you?

There’s no better way to warm up than a hot bowl of chili.

Facilities Management and the Northwest Arkansas Plumbing School are celebrating National Apprenticeship Week by hosting the 4th annual Chili Cook-off. A new Chili Champion will be crowned, and proceeds go to the U of A United Way.

Lunch is served between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. Friday, Nov. 16 in the Facilities Carpenter Shop. For $5 you’ll get bowl of chili with or without a hot dog, fixin’s and a drink to cool your palate.

Everyone with a taste for chili – which is everyone, right? – is invited to come for lunch, sample all the entries, and – for an extra donation to the United Way -- vote for their favorite.

All proceeds go to the U of A United Way campaign.

The winner of the competition gets to keep the Chili Cook-off Trophy for a year, made by the craftsmen of the Facilities carpentry shop.

There’s still time to enter your personal prized chili recipe: contact Laura Wood at lam012@uark.edu.
