Awareness Washington County Chili Cook-Off

Greetings from the classes, board and staff of Awareness Washington County & We The Youth Leadership Programs. Thanks to you, over the last thirty years we have been able to help over five hundred adults and youth develop or enhance their leadership potential. It is because of supporters like you that we are able to continue this nationally recognized program in our community.

With the winter months underway, we have the opportunity to hold a Chili Cook Off on March 11, 2017. In past years, hundreds of people throughout the community visited other chili cookoffs for some delicious chili, games and great company. We hope that the AWC/WTY cookoff will become an annual community event.

We are seeking table sponsors to help bring about this wonderful event and have several sponsorship levels for you to consider. Habanero is $2500 or more, Jalapeno is $500 or more, Hot is $250 or more and Spicy is $100 or less. Your donation would help with the prizes for the chili aficionados, but most importantly, your gift will help adults and youth in our community feel more confident and competant in their lives as Servant Leaders. All contributors will be recognized both at the event and after the event through local media and on our social media sites. Please let us know of your sponsorship intentions no later than March 1, 2017.

We are thankful for all your continued support to promote Awareness Washington County and We The Youth.
