Dreams for Orphans is Hosting a Chili Cook-Off!

The best types of fundraisers involve food, right? Well, we certainly think so!chili cook off

Due to its past success, we’re hosting our fifth Chili Competition to benefit for Dreams for Orphans. This epic rodeo of food and fun will take place at the Roger’s humble abode on Saturday, November 14th starting at 6:30 pm (you will receive a specific address once you’ve RSVP’d for the event). There will be room for 15 chilis this year, each one tasted and judged by attendees. The top three winners will receive awesome prizes and plenty of bragging rights!

Admission price is $75 per person. All proceeds from the cook-off will support Dreams for Orphans’ mission to create a better life for the orphans of Accra, Ghana through building safe environments and providing educational opportunities.

Space is limited to make sure to RSVP! Donation options include $75 if you’re coming solo, $150 for couples, and whatever you can contribute if you cannot attend the actual event. Click here to RSVP and donate. Make sure to come hungry!

This event has always been a blast in years past, and we’re expecting it to be better than ever this time around. We’d like to think of it as a pre-holiday party for a great cause. Hope to see you there—yee haw!

About the Author
My 24 years as a flight attendant have enabled me to travel and see much of the world. When I started going to Africa my passion was born to help the less fortunate and show my own 3 children this imbalance. I wanted them to know they had a responsibility to others as they grow up in a world that most things are readily accessible to them and are not to most the world. It is easy to fall in love with children in Africa. It is more difficult to find appropriate ways to help. Education was by far the first tool we knew could be powerful and effective. Combining this with improved environment, enables them to grow and thrive with food, shelter, medical care and most of all love.I travel to Ghana as a flight attendant monthly and enjoy taking my children on working trips as well as our own vacation time. Being on the ground making sure the DFO funds are carefully dispatched is rewarding and I am compensated by their huge smiles and hugs every time I visit. Seven years have gone by so fast and I cannot imagine my life without DFO and all the children. As Dreams continues to grow I relish the fact that the number of orphans we are helping is increasing. We are able to expand to more orphanages and provide education and safe environments to those orphans who deserve a rich and happy life.
