Organizers seek creative chefs for annual chili challenge on Windsor Town Green
Local businesses, civic groups and creative cooks are encouraged to register in advance for this year’s Chili Challenge on the Windsor Town Green to determine who has the right “hot stuff.” This year’s Windsor Chamber of Commerce Chili Challenge is proudly sponsored by Windsor Federal Savings and scheduled for Saturday, September 30th from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
The first 10 teams to sign up will be entered into a drawing for a $100 Geissler's Gift Card.
Jane Garibay, Executive Director of the Windsor Chamber of Commerce applauded presenting sponsor Windsor Federal Savings, “It is very special to have local business support who become involved in what has become a true Autumn tradition on the Windsor Town Green.”
“There is always plenty of great tasting chili, great costumes and plenty of family fun at this popular event,” said event chair Kathy Kopacz on behalf of the Windsor Chamber of Commerce, “We are thrilled that so many cooks have agreed to return – and we welcome any new groups who would like to join in the fun!”
