Houston, TX (December 1, 2014) - Join the Jewish community for a fun-filled day of festivities and a kosher chili competition during the 5th Annual Houston Kosher Chili Cookoff. The event will be held on Sunday, March 8, 2015, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is currently accepting applications for cooking teams, vendors, and sponsors for participation.
The Kosher Chili Cookoff is the largest kosher food event in Houston and celebrates the fellowship of the Jewish community with a day of food, live entertainment, contests, and family friendly activities while raising funds for non-profit organizations in the Houston Jewish Community.
The cookoff attracts more than 3,500 attendees annually for live music, a moonwalk, climbing walls, balloon artists, a jalapeno eating contest and a silent auction as they taste some of Houston's best kosher chili. Cooking teams are encouraged to register for the judged competition so groups or organizations can promote themselves, build teamwork, have fun and reward contributors, board members and staff. Winners of the kosher chili tasting contest will win coveted trophies and prizes presented by celebrity and media judges during the award ceremony at 2:30 p.m.
Potential sponsors can participate in the event with different support levels ranging from $500 to $18,000. All levels of funding will receive marketing opportunities at a table during the cookoff, in press releases, advertising, social media, printed collateral, on t-shirts and on the Houston Kosher Chili Cookoff website. Further benefits are available for higher-level sponsorship packages.
A participation fee of $150 is charged for vendors. For more information on becoming a cooking team, sponsor, volunteer, vendor or to download an entry form, please visit www.houstonkosherchilicookoff.com or follow us on Facebook or Twitter.
