The Batavia Viking Ring Lodge #18, in collaboration with Batavia United Way, bring you the Fifth Annual Chili Cook-off on Sat., Oct. 10 at 1pm. The event supports local non-profit agencies and the Illinois Fire Safety Alliance Burn Camp. The Chili Appreciation Society International, Inc. (CASI) sanctions this event, which means the cooks will prepare the chili on site and from scratch, with no fillers. Besides the best tasting chili winners, cooks can earn a showmanship award. New this year to the event is a community blood drive administered by Heartland Blood Centers from 10am-2pm. Tasting tickets cost $5 each and are available at the door. The entry fee to cook is $20.
