Houston, TX (February 8, 2016) - The 6th Annual Kosher Chili Cookoff is proud to announce its 2016 sponsors for its annual family fun community event. The 2016 event will be held on Sunday, February 28th at the Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center.

Corporations and businesses significantly support the non-profit organizations in the Houston Jewish Community that benefit from the proceeds of the event, which include the Jewish Day Schools including Beren Academy, Beth Yeshurun Day School, Emory Weiner, The Shlenker School, Torah Day School, Torah Girls Academy, Yeshiva Torat Emet and the Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center's Meals on Wheels. Investments like theirs allow the cook off to continue bringing the communities together for the largest kosher food event in Houston.

"Our sponsors make this cook off possible and we are grateful for their support this year and every year", said State District Judge Mike Engelhart, a member of the Houston Kosher Chili Cookoff board of directors. "We will honor them by putting on our greatest event yet with our 6th Annual Kosher Chili Cookoff. It's the largest Jewish-community wide event of its type in Houston and the generosity of our sponsors and their enthusiasm for our common goal of bringing our community together for fun and food with a little kick is amazing."
