Chili Cook-Off: THE RULES!

If you are reading this, then I hope by now you've formed an All-Star Chili Cook-Off team for next weekend's big charity Chili Cook-Off benefitting the Samaritan Inn! Who will win the first ever, "Golden Ladle"??

Here are the main rules of the event. Please take a moment to read 'em and then be prepared to bring your very best CHILI!!

1. Prepare your chili ahead of time and BRING IT IN A CROCKPOT.
2. The type of chili you bring is up to you. Beans, no beans. Meat only. Vegetarian. YOU decide. The guests will vote and decide your fate!
3. Your chili will recieve a number OR letter (depending on category), so as to keep the voting anonymous, and eliminate a "popularity contest". There are 2 categories: Vendors will recieve a letter, Friends & Clients will recieve a number.
4. Guests will get to sample all of the chili - and VOTE - by taking a small sample from the sample cups provided. Those that want to enjoy a bowl of your chili can make a cash donation ($1 or more suggested). We'll even provide some popular chili toppings!
5. There will be two winners identified. The “Best Traditional and Classic Chili” will be the one with the highest combined scores for “traditional and classic” and “tastes great”. The “Best New and Different Chili” will be the one with the highest combined scores for “traditional and classic” and “tastes great”. This result will properly reward entries that are either strong and steady or new and clever, but only if they taste good, too!

To all of our guests, please plan on bringing the following 4 things:
1. Your Appetite!
2. 1 canned good OR item from the Samaritan Inn Need's List gets you into the event.
3. Cash/coin donations for extra bowls of chili or desserts.
4. Lawn chairs.

We're really looking forward to a GREAT event!

Fundraising: Why did we choose The Samaritan Inn

d + b real estate wants to give back to the community that we live and work in. The Inn is the only homeless shelter in Collin County and with the current economy many people are one paycheck away from needng help from the Inn.

About the Inn and Its History
The Samaritan Inn was established in 1984 after community leaders joined together to address the issue of homelessness in Collin County. Twenty five years later, The Samaritan Inn is still the largest homeless program in a county of over 762,000 residents.

All services and support are provided free of charge through funding made from donations by churches, service groups and organizations, corporations, and individuals. The Samaritan Inn is also a member of the United Way of Collin County.

The Need
Homeless families and individuals are the focus at The Samaritan Inn. In 2009, the Inn served 660 residents.

The Mission
We are a comprehensive homeless program that helps willing people gain dignity and independence.

The Goal
To help people regain their independence.

The Outcome
Over 72% of the residents graduated from our program; which means they had an income and housing when they left The Samaritan Inn last year.

Current NEEDS list at the Inn:

Please come out and support the Inn at our Chili Cook-off Saturday, November 6th from 12-3. The post below has more information about the event.

1st Annual Chili Cook-Off Fundraising Event

The Realtors at d + b real estate are excited to announce their 1st Annual Chili Cook-Off, benefitting The Samaritan Inn, on Saturday, November 6. Enjoy the fall weather while tasting and judging all different flavors & styles of chili, participating in family games and networking with the businesses, friends and family that the agents at d + b consider our “team”.

Competitors and cooks of all skill levels are invited to show off their cooking skills and seek the coveted “Golden Ladle” award. Teams will be competing in one of two categories: the Vendor category or the Clients & Friends category. Bring your prepared chili in a crock-pot and let the guests decide your fate!

How do you sign up? Easy! Print the registration form at the bottom of this post. The entry fee is only $25, OR, vendors have the option of paying $30 to include a table for your business promotional materials.

Don’t feel like cooking? That's OK. We're not all Bobby Flay or Gordon Ramsay! Be our guest and sample ALL of the chili for FREE! One canned good gets you into all the food and festivities. We’re counting on YOU to be our judges. We will be accepting cash donations if you would like to purchase a bowl of chili and other delectable bites!

The little ones are welcome too! For the kids we will offer “non-chili” food plus a schedule of fun games and activities.

And…every person that attends has a chance to win a $75 gift certificate to Sauce on the Square!

The Chili Cook-Off will be held at Towne Lake Park in McKinney, just across from McKinney High School from noon to 3 PM.

ALL proceeds will go towards The Samaritan Inn in an effort to bring attention to National Homeless Awareness Month. We appreciate your support!
