  • Child Advocates
    Child Advocates raises funds for its charitable kid-advocacy mission with a four-hour chili-cook-off competition that hosts popular area restaurants and their chefs. Nine eateries compete in this year’s spice-off, including Zelko Bistro, Haven, and BRC Gastropub, stuffing the roster with more VIPs than a continually updated list of spelling-bee champions. Guests can taste the chili concoctions that emerge from the competition, assessing their favorite flavors and knowing each bite supports a positive local cause. The chili cook-off raises funds to help curtail child abuse, universally considered a better way to support kids than firing chili-filled canons over elementary schools.
