19th Annual BWL Chili Cook-off

  • The 19th Annual Chili Cook-off was a large success thanks in part to our sponsors, vendors and all those community members who attended. In total, over 6,000 people came to taste this year’s samples. Back again this year was the Chili Dog Eating Contest, Duck Derby, live music and family fun entertainment. All proceeds benefited the Impression 5 Science Center, Lansing Promise/Hope Scholarship and the Sparrow Foundation. New to the event was the Chili Head Start Pass, which allowed attendees to skip the lines and enter the park 30 minutes early. All benefits from this program benefited the Wounded Warrior Project. Assistant Head Coach to the MSU Spartans Football Team Pat Narduzzi was also the first ever Chili Chairman at the event. The BWL can’t wait for the 20th Annual Chili Cook-off in 2015!
