Evans County Takes First Place (Twice!) in Chili Cook-Off

The Evans County C.A.R.E.S Annual Chili Cook-Off was especially eventful for Evans County. The annual event serves as a community fundraiser to aid in the fight to defeat cancer. Representatives from local businesses, civic associations, non-profits, and churches from around town, go head-to-head presenting their submissions for the public to try, vote, and donate to further cancer research. Officially, it’s a chili cook-off, but as everybody knows, chili is more than what’s on the menu. From chowders to soups to desserts, the possibilities for the palette are almost endless!

We’re proud of the Evans County Board of Commissioners and the Evans County Fire Department for BOTH placing first place in their respective categories. The Evans County BOC won first in the “Main Dish” category and the Evans County Fire Department won first place in the “Best Tasting Chili” category. We want to give a special thanks to Commissioners Irene Burney and Jill Griffin and Firefighters Donny Bates, Tracy Beasley and Amanda Starling for representing their organizations and bringing their culinary A-game to the event! Congratulations!
