Are your taste buds still sizzling from our 7th annual Stars, Stripes, and Chow Chili Cook Off presented by M&T Bank?
The weather was perfect, the stomachs were rumbling, and the music was lively! Camden Yards turned out to be a great new location for this event to make it’s in-person comeback this year. Our five participating chili teams really brought the heat with their booth décor and chili recipes. It was a tough call for our judges (representing each military branch) to pick the winner of Judges Choice - The MartinFed Pit Crew
, but they weren’t the only ones with a difficult choice. The audience had the chance to vote for the best decorated booth along with their favorite chili. After voting was in, the winner of both best decorated booth and crowd favorite was MMHA
or should we say The Muppets with "It’s Not Easy Being Green" Chili. MartinFederal also won the award for Top Fundraiser.
Soundcheck Rock Academy provided live music from a multitude of bands representing all ages and music genres. They were a hit with our attendees!
We would like to extend a big thank you to all our teams, without whom this event would not have been possible! We would also like to thank everyone who attended, donated and volunteered for this event. Stars, Stripes and Chow raised more than $55,000 this year, with every dollar directly providing critical funding for our programs.
Mark your calendars for the 8th annual Stars, Stripes and Chow chili cook off which will take place on Saturday, November 5, 2022 at Camden Yards. We hope you’re able to join us again next year!
