Chili cook-off moves to bandshell

The location of Saturday’s Charity Chili Cook-off for Sunflower Diversified Services Diversified has moved to the bandshell area of the Barton County Courthouse Square. The event runs from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Nov. 12.
“There is still time to enter and we want to encourage folks to stop by and sample chili to benefit the local food bank,” said Sarah Krom with Sunflower.
There is no entry fee for cooks with all proceeds from tasters going directly to the Barton County Food Bank in Great Bend. Purchase of a $5 taster bracelet allows individuals to sample the entries and vote on the best chili and best booth. For an additional donation tasters can follow their chili with a fresh cinnamon roll. The People’s Choice voting will end at 1:45 p.m. and all awards announced around 2 p.m.

Sunflower, a non-profit agency, serves babies, toddlers and adults with developmental disabilities in Barton, Pawnee, Rice, Rush and Stafford counties.
