Owens Community College Students hosts Chili Cook-Off Cancer Awareness fundraiser, March 31
The public is invited to put their taste buds to the test as Owens Community College’s Raising Awareness Club hosts its first-ever Chili Cook-Off Cancer Awareness fundraising event on Thursday, March 31.
The Chili Cook-Off will occur from 12:30-1:30 p.m. in the College’s Student Health and Activities Center. Owens is located on Oregon Road in Perrysburg Township, Ohio. The cost to attend is $3 per person, which includes a tasting kit and all-you-can-eat chili.
Attendees will have the opportunity to sample an assortment of chili from various Owens student and employee teams, and then vote for their favorite edible delight. The team who receives the most votes will become the Chili Cook-Off people’s choice winner and the chili will be sold at the College’s Fireside and Jaguar grills as part of a collaborative effort between the Raising Awareness Club and AVI Foodsystems.
Proceeds raised from the Chili Cook-Off will benefit testicular cancer awareness and research through LIVESTRONG and the International Testicular Cancer Foundation.
Owens’ Raising Awareness Club was founded with the overall purpose of raising awareness about an array of issues and causes. Comprised of Owens students, employees and alumni, the group is committed to advocating for the acceptance of cultural differences, global unity, disability awareness and various needs that impact the surrounding communities.
