The Great District 8 Chili for Chile Challenge:
Eat, watch supes duke it out, and rebuild an orphanage in Chile all at the same time!

Hey "The Defibrillator Readers"! Want something to really get your heart going? My friend Jeff Cotter, the handsome E.D. (that's Executive Director!) and founder of Rainbow World Fund (shown here at another event with Dame Edna!), is hosting this fabulous event in the Castro this Sunday, May 23. 

The Cook-Off is a fundraiser to rebuild an orphanage in Santiago, Chile. How cool is that? Please come, and invite your friends! 

Event: The Great District 8 Chili for Chile Challenge
Time: Sunday, May 23 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Location: Most Holy Redeemer Church Hall, 100 Diamond St., San Francisco, CA 94114 (in the Castro)
This is a Chili Cook-Off between the District 8 Supervisor Candidates to raise funds to help rebuild an orphanage in Santiago, Chile that was destroyed by the recent earthquake.
The Cook-Off will be Emceed by Supervisor Bevan Dufty and Sister Roma of The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgences and will include participation by the top District 8 Supervisor Candidates (Rebecca Prozan, Scott Weiner, Rafael Mandelman, Bill Hemmenger). Other participants will include The Consulate General of Chile, Betty Sullivan, Andrea Shorter, Greg Bronstein, Ethel Merman of EMX and an array of glittering talent from our community. The Challenge: Each of the Board of Supervisors Candidates from District 8 are bringing a large pot of their best chili recipe to be judged by a distinguished panel of celebrity “chili experts” alongside that of each of the other candidates. Prizes will be awarded and there will be musical and comedy performances. Silent Auction and Raffle. There will be wine, vodka, and tequila bars, and free food!

Come cheer on your favorite candidate! This is a fantastic opportunity for the LGBT and Friends community to come together in unity to help the children of Chile.

If you absolutely can't come, you can still help by spreading the word - tell your Bay Area friends about the event. Make a donation:
