This tasty event will take place on Feb. 17 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Treasure Island Community Center, 154 106th Avenue. There will be music, prizes, a raffle and more. There will also be beer and wine available for a donation. This annual event benefits the Treasure Island Fire Association and its chosen charities.  

There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd best chili recipes in two different classes – “The Open Class” and “The Pro Class.” There will also be a special “Dominique Reiter Award” presented by TIFR Chief Trip Barrs for the best-decorated chili station.
