Bringin' The Heat at the Rootin' Tootin' Chili Cookoff!


Chili Cookoff 2014


Although it’s been a few days, there’s still the faint smell of delicious chili floating though our office…

Socket joined 50 other organizations in the Rootin’ Tootin’ Chili Cookoff last weekend, benefiting the Boys and Girls Club of Columbia. This event funds the club until its next event in the fall, and allows the club to provide services to nearly 600 area kids.

While we can’t tell you the whole recipe (our chef has sworn us to secrecy), we can say that we used over 50 habanero peppers. Spicy! We made sure to warn people, although some chili enthusiasts took our warning as a challenge.

An estimated 2000 people attended this year’s cookoff, beating the fundraising goal of $75,000  for the Boys and Girls Club. We can’t wait until next year’s competition… and yes, we’ll be bringing the heat!
