Get ready for food and fun at the Chili Cook-Off & Silent Auction Fundraiser!

Enter your favorite chili recipe in the cook-off for a chance at winning the title of "Crossview's Best Chili." If you don't have a chili recipe to enter, plan to come and sample all of the chili entries and vote on your favorite! There will also be a silent auction that includes amazing donations from our community. 100% of the proceeds will support our students going to CHIC this summer.

Here are four ways you can be a part of this annual event:

1. Donate to the Silent Auction. You probably have more to donate than you realize! Care Baskets, Gift Cards/Vouchers, Baked Goods, Tools or Kitchen Supplies, and "personal experiences" (like a weekend at your cabin, use of your RV, boat, swimming pool, etc) are always a huge hit. You can "donate" your skills too! If you're a photographer, you could donate a photo package. Are you an artist or are you fluent in another language? How about donating a few weeks of lessons? Simply email nextgen(at) and let us know what you'd like to donate (we do ask that all items be in new or "like new" condition).

2. Enter your Chili Recipe. First, second, and third places prizes will be awarded by our chili judges, as well as a special "popular vote" award. We are hoping to have 25+ chili entries this year. Fill out the form below to enter the chili cook-off.

3. Volunteer. We need some adults to help students with finding donations, organizing the event, setup/cleanup, and coordinating tasks throughout the night. Email nextgen(at) and we will get you plugged in.

4. Bring your Family and Friends! Invite others to join us on March 18 to vote for their favorite chili recipe and bid on items in the silent auction!
