Chili Cook-Off in Jacksonville
The weather is getting a little cooler and people are starting to crave warm comfort food, which means it’s perfect time for Sanders Ford’s annual chili cook-off. This is the eighth year we’ve hosted the chili off and each year it gets bigger and better. We love seeing all the different recipes that people come up with and of course we love taste testing them. The best part of the whole event is that it’s for a good cause. All the proceeds from the cook-off goes to Toys for Tots. Come check out the chili cook-off in Jacksonville this Halloween!
The chili cook-off at Sanders Ford is the perfect opportunity to prove that you have the best chili around. We will be giving first, second and third place trophies to our winners. First place will also receive a special secret prize this year. We encourage those interested to sign up to compete as soon as possible at our receptionist desk. For those who come to taste all the different chili dishes, we only ask that you bring a new unwrapped toy that will be donated to Toys for Tots or pay $5. Employees, customers and their family members are all welcome to come enjoy an endless bowl of chili for a good cause.
The cook-off will take place on October 31st at noon. All the proceeds will be used to purchase toys to donate to the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program. It is their mission to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December every year. These toys are then distributed to needy children in the community. This cook-off is a great way to get kick off the Toys for Tots season. They try to collect as many toys as possible to make help improve the holidays for as many children as they can.
Sanders Ford is always finding ways to stay involved in the community. They are also donating $5 for every car they sell from September 5th-December 5th to the Onslow County Relay for Life. They are also sponsoring the Onslow Oktoberfest and the Dancing Stars of Jacksonville. Even though we are a Ford dealership, we are still heavily involved in the community. If you want to help us help others, contact our dealership for more information on what activities are coming up and make sure to check back here often. We’ll keep you updated on everything that’s going on!
