Chili Cook-Off Charity Event

Supporting Domestic Abuse Women's Network since 2006

Our charity partners need us now more than ever. Domestic violence cases are on the rise in our region and even though we can't come together in person, we need to come together to support DAWN. Please donate to our WMFHA Gives Back campaign at the link below. WMFHA will be matching up to $25,000 of your donations for DAWN. Thank you.

WMFHA Gives Back to DAWN 2020


WMFHA's Chili Cook-Off is fun for the whole family! Featuring a chili competition, trick or treating, a kid's zone, fabulous raffle items - this is a day of fun and festivities that supports a noble cause. In addition to lots of chili sampling, we offer hot dogs, ice cream, and hot and cold beverages. 

Coming in 2021!

Think your chili recipe has what it takes? First place and runner-up awards are given to the Best Overall Chili, the Hottest (but still edible) Chili, the Most Creative Chili, the People's Choice Chili, and the Best Overall Theme and costumes by booth. Some of the best kid's costumes will also take home a prize.

DAWN is a nonprofit organization that helps tens of thousands of women, children and men find safety, support and empowerment for building a better life. In 2019, our members raised a record $56,566 for DAWN.
