Located in a city known for its diverse culinary scene and community spirit, Urban South HTX proudly announces its inaugural Charity Chili Cook-off, set to take place on Saturday, February 3, 2024, from 1-6 pm. This event will be a flavorful feast and an opportunity to rally together to support a local family facing unimaginable challenges.

The Herrin family's story is one that resonates deeply within the Houston community. Channing Herrin, General Manager of Nobi Public House in Clear Lake, and his wife, Laura, received heart-wrenching news mere days before Christmas – their beloved 3-year-old daughter, Olivia, has been diagnosed with cancer. In solidarity, Urban South HTX will direct all funds from the Charity Chili Cook-off to support the Herrin family during this challenging time.

In the upcoming year, Olivia will undergo weekly chemotherapy sessions, requiring at least one overnight hospital stay every three weeks. Additionally, she is scheduled for another surgical procedure for tumor resection, followed by radiation treatment. Despite this challenging journey, Olivia remains resilient, and her family maintains a positive outlook. The road ahead for Olivia is undeniably long, but her determined spirit continues to shine through.

To participate in the chili sampling, attendees are asked to make a $10 donation, preferably in cash. This entry fee covers all essentials needed for sampling and includes a ticket to vote for the Chilli People's Choice Award. On the other hand, a panel of selected judges will determine the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners.

The first-place winner will receive a trophy and claim 50% of the total cash prize pot generated from customer entry and team registration donations. The remaining 50% will be donated to the Herrin family to support their fight against cancer. The 2nd and 3rd place teams will be awarded Urban South gift baskets, and the People's Choice Award winner will take home a special trophy.

Teams interested in participating in the chili cook-off can sign up for a $25 donation fee. There is no limit on team members, and all relevant information will be provided in the sign-up packet sent via email. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, with a limited number of teams being accepted. To secure your spot, please visit this link.

Urban South HTX invites Houstonians to join together to positively impact the lives of the Herrin family. For more information on Urban South’s Chilli Cook-off, follow the Houston taproom on Instagram and Facebook.
