Last year many students, families, faculty and others were brought together and enjoyed the first Saddleback College chili bowl cook-off, hosted by the ceramics department with the proceeds funding many veterans programs on campus.

This year, things will be a little bit different. Although the chili cook-off will still benefit the veterans programs, it will also benefit those who assisted with the personal, handmade aspects of the Veterans Memorial, the ceramics department itself.

General admission is $30, while Veterans/students/family can purchase their tickets for $15.  Admission includes a hand-crafted bowl made by the ceramics department, salad, bread, and two tickets for your choice of beverage, which include beer, wine or soda.

While the benefit is focused on mainly the chili itself, there will be many different games, including a “pin the unibrow on Frida.”

The cook-off is being hosted by students, faculty volunteers and faculty volunteers of Saddleback College’s ceramics department.  The veterans themselves will also have their own booth.

The event takes place Wednesday, Nov. 7, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Fine Arts quad.
