Chili Cook-off

Posted by Lauren_taf on September 19, 2012.

To coincide with Vinton’s Fall Festival, the Charity Cottage is heating things up with its first annual Chili Cook-Off. Chefs will compete for the best recipe, chosen by the discerning taste buds of Festival goers.

All proceeds from chili sales will be donated to local charities. This event will be held at The Charity Cottage Thrift Store on Saturday, October 13th, 2012 from 12:00pm – 3:00pm.

We’re looking for recipes you’d have to pry from Grandma’s fingers. Hot and spicy, dense and smoky, carnivorous or vegetarian, if you’ve got what it takes, put your skills to the test in the name of charity. To enter, you must register by October 5th, 2012. Contact us at or (540) 345-1292 for more information.

All proceeds benefit The Charity Cottage Thrift Store. The Charity Cottage Thrift Store was established by the local non-profit aid organization, The Advancement Foundation, to benefit the communities of the Roanoke Valley. The Advancement Foundation works to eliminate poverty through strategic support, and so has developed The Charity Cottage Thrift Store to provide “earned income” funding for multiple local health and human services nonprofits, while also providing skills training and community service opportunities for the underprivileged and disabled. The Charity Cottage Thrift Store also works to actively engage community leaders, civic organizations, local schools and churches in various ways in order to involve the entire community in the social change movement.

For further questions please do not hesitate to contact us at 540-345-1292 or send us an email at
