Firefighters Chili Cook-off
The Retired Firefighters of Palm Beach County will be hosting their Firefighter Chili Cook Off on Saturday, February 4th at the Abacoa Amphitheater. Decorated chili booths from local departments, restaurants, and organizations will all compete for prizes and bragging rights. It is the responsibility of the celebrity judges to finally determine the “best” chili and “theme” booths. This is the perfect secure venue to gather the family for cold drinks, hot chili, and live music to support all our community partners.
Chili tasting armbands can be purchased on Eventbrite (firefighter Chili Cook Off) or purchased the day of the event. Chili tasting armbands are $20 for adults and $10 for children over 12. A vendor onsite will sell adult beverages. This year the Firefighter Chili Cook Off event will benefit two organizations: Firefighters on a Mission and Firefighters to the Rescue. Firefighters on a Mission raise money to find a cure for Duchanne Muscular Dystrophy and Firefighters to the Rescue raise money for firefighters and their family in need.
The Retired Firefighters of Palm Beach County are a combination of Firefighters from local fire departments that have combined to maintain the brotherhood by supporting the health and welfare of local Firefighters as well as the community we fought so hard to protect. They are a charitable 501c3 organization that aid fire-related agencies while continuing to support our community. To date, the Retired Firefighters of Palm Beach County have been able to donate over $70,000 to individuals in need and agencies such as Hospice, War on Cancer Street Party, Firefighters with Cancer, and the PBC Drowning Prevention. We are proud to support firefighters and the community.
