My Town: 3rd Annual Pete Soto Chili Cook-Off

CHILI COOK OFF

AVON, Ohio — Several agencies are supporting the Lorain County Blue Foundation with the annual Pete Soto Chili Cook-Off.

The third annual cook-off will be held on Saturday, February 23 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Avon Knights of Columbus.

Organizations from Amherst, Avon, Avon Lake, Elyria, Lorain, North Ridgeville, Oberlin, Vermilion and several more are participating in the 2013 competition.

The cook-off became a tradition as a way to honor those who protect and serve local communities. The Lorain County Blue Foundation supports members of law enforcement injured in the line of duty; as well as supporting families of those killed, while serving the community.

Organizers are asking for a $15 donation to attend the event.
