2024chili Cook Off Flyer Small

The Sierra Madre Kiwanis Club welcomed ‘Members For A Day’ to an evening of fun, food, and fundraising.

Thanks to YOU, the Sierra Madre Kiwanis Annual Boot Skootin Chili Cook-Off a Great Success!

Thank you to all our attendees and Sierra Madre Kiwanis members for making this year’s Boot Scooting Chili Cook-Off the best year yet!

Sierra Madre Kiwanis Concert in the Park

Originally chaired by Kiwanian (and creator of the event, Joe Pergola, with his wife Jacquie,) attendees adorned their favorite western attire and came ready to ‘throw down’. There were five courageous entrants to the cook-off and ‘spicy’ seemed to be the word of the day.

Peter Dills will be the Chili Cook Off Judge

Renowned Food Critic Peter Dills returns this year as the Celebrity Judge. Music and Line Dancing instruction are provided. Hats off to Shirley Anhalt and Marta Capoccia, who were two of the best fancy dancing ladies of the evening.

There were two categories for the contestants, the first being the Celebrity Judging by Peter Dills and the second was The People’s Choice Award where attendees picked the winners.

Now is your chance to enter the chili cook-off. Let’s taste your best chili receipt and see if everyone agrees your chili is the best in town!

Funds from the event will go to the Imagine Art program of Creative Arts for children at Sierra Madre Elementary School.
