What do Chili, Bug Days, & Hospice have in common?

Well one day a year these 3 beautiful things have the Johnny Tillemans’ Memorial Chili Cook Off in common! This year, the Cook Off (in conjunction with Minneota “Bug Days”) is Saturday, September 7th. The Competition is open to the public for anyone to show up and compete, the cooking starts at sunrise.
Before you read on, go through this flow chart to determine if you are a “Cook” or a “Foodie”
“The Cook”
Soooo why should you compete you ask? You mean other than for complete bragging rights? Prizes are given out for Judge’s Choice: 1st, 2nd and 3rd place; AND for People’s choice: Best Booth & Best Chili. If you really need more convincing after that, all the funds raised get donated back to Prairie Home Hospice. So that’s pretty neat too! Now that you have determined yourself “Chili Extraordinaire” let’s get you signed up! All you need to do is give us a call at 507-337-0080. OR Email cassi.weiss@Prairiehomehospice.org and that’s it! Show up that morning and get to cookin’
“The Foodie”
