Our 13th Annual Chili Chowder Challenge
was held on Saturday, March 22, 2014
at the Augusta Armory, from 11 am - 2:00 pm
General consensus is that it was "the greatest ever!"
With strong support from you, our community, we raised
OVER $42,000 to benefit the children and families served by the Children's Center Early Intervention and Family Support.
Hope to see you next year - watch for updates next February for our March event!
This is a fabulously fun family-friendly event, with all proceeds raised going directly to the Children's Center: Early Intervention and Family Support.
Join us in taste-testing the fares of 12-15 local restaurants and caterers, and vote for BEST CHILI, BEST CHOWDER, and other fun categories.
There are LIVE and SILENT AUCTIONS, Live musical entertainment, crafts and activities for children of all ages, and a snack bar.
We are Looking Forward to Seeing You All There!!
