Battling Cancer with Chili

. February 18, 2014.

Spice up your February with award-winning chili and basketball – and help a good cause, too. Cancer Patient Services, providing support for people with cancer in Hancock County, will host its 16th annual Chili Cook-Off this month. The cook-off will feature more than 30 different community, church and individual teams vying for bragging rights. The day will offer chili samples, a bounce house and other children’s activities, and both a live and silent auction.  More than 1,400 people are expected to attend. Plus, the organization and the University of Findlay are teaming up to offer combined admission to both that day’s men’s and women’s home basketball games and the cook-off. Fans can go to the Koehler Center and get into the chili cook-off and the games for one price. Those wishing to skip the game can still go to the cook-off for the same price.

Saturday, February 22 from 4:45-8pm. Koehler Center, 1000 N. Main St., Findlay. Admission to the 1pm women’s game and the 3pm men’s game – both against Malone University – is $7/adults and $4/children ages 6 through 12. Children under five are admitted free. Tickets can be purchased through Cancer Patient Services, 1800 N. Blanchard St. and at the door. For more information, call 419-423-0286.
