Information about the event emailed to me:

If you enjoy eating chili and making a difference, then Bridges’ 10th Annual “Hotter than Thou” Chili Cook-Off is for you!

On Sunday, March 29th, Bridges to Housing Stability will bring together 15 local congregations in a friendly, philanthropic competition to determine who has the best chili in Howard County! We welcome all community members that are looking for a fun, family-friendly opportunity to support a worthy cause and engage with community members including county dignitaries and officials.

The festivities will begin at 12:30 PM (no entry price) and all proceeds will benefit Bridges’ housing programs. You will have the opportunity to support low-income and homeless populations by sampling the various chilis and tipping your favorites. You can also participate in our magnificent raffle and silent auction.


We hope you’ll join in this afternoon of fun and fellowship at Dar Al-Taqwa Islamic Center located at 10780 Route 108, Ellicott City, MD 21042 on Sunday, March 29th from 12:30 – 3 PM! Visit www/ or email


Chili and a good cause to support…hard to beat that.
