Do you make the best chili in your fire house or police station? If so, create a team and join Fairfax 2015 at the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce Oktoberfest Reston Chili Cook-off in collaboration with the 2015 World Police & Fire Games.
The event is held at Reston Town Center, which will be the home of the Athletes Village and provides an opportunity to introduce the community to the Games and for potential athletes to get a sneak peak of the Athletes Village.
“It is a natural fit for Fairfax 2015 to partner with the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce to make the 2014 Guns ‘n Hoses Chili Cook-off the most competitive ever!” said Lt. Jaime Popik, Director, Ceremonies and Special Events “In 2013, the Games staff entered a team in the Guns ‘N Hoses Chili Cook-off and while we didn’t place but it was a great experience to engage with other public safety officials from around the region, for a great cause. So, we jumped on board to help increase the number of teams participating in the event by reaching out to police and fire departments throughout the National Capital Region and on the East Coast”. Rain or shine, Fairfax 2015 plans to enhance this event and showcase the great chili made by first responders.
To do this, we need you and your team to join the competition, bring the best chili recipe and compete for cash prizes on October 11 at Reston Town Center. The competition is free to enter and each participating team will receive a $100 gift card to offset the purchase of supplies for your chili.
The proceeds from the Guns ‘N Hoses Chili Cook-off goes to the Reston First Responders Awards Committee, which is a partnership between the Fairfax County Police Department Reston District station and the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce.
