Last year, McKinney hosted the 1st Annual Hot Tech Chili Cook Off, which raised money for the WERX Foundation. The organization is a non-profit that provides small businesses and startups with the necessary tools and resources needed to thrive. This year, the cook off is still benefitting the WERX Foundation and has added The Love Life Foundation, which is a non-profit that is dedicated to supporting victims of child abuse and to breaking the cycle within the community.
The 2nd annual event promises to be even bigger and better this year, with twenty teams competing for an array of awards, including: Best All Around, People’s Choice, Hottest Chili, and Most Unique. The event is being sponsored by and held at the TUPPS Brewery (Anderson St) on Saturday, October 15th, with cooking beginning at noon and tasting starting at 5pm. Doors open to the public at 2:30pm.
Not only will there be chili everywhere you go, there’ll be live music provided throughout the day with acts Gander Slu, Maylee Thomas, and George Fuller hitting the stage starting at 3pm.
