Oklahoma County 4-H Chili Cook Off & Auction

Residents who want to get their fill of some of the best homemade chili around are invited to attend the Oklahoma County 4-H Annual Chili Supper and Auction, Saturday, November 18th, at the OSU Extension Conference Center, 2500 NE 63rd St. OKC, OK, 73111. 

The chili supper, complete with the fixings, will get started at 6:00 p.m.   4-H Clubs across the county will be making their own chili and competing against other 4-H Clubs.  From 6:00 to 7:00 pm participants will get to sample each club’s chili and vote for the “best tasting chili”.  Then you can fill-up on your favorite chili, donations for the meal are accepted.  Also, starting at 6:00 pm and concluding at 7:00 pm is the silent auction.  Then at approximately 7:30 pm will be a live auction for a few bigger items

Another great treat will be sweets made by 4-H members at the fantastic Sweet Shoppe.  “This is one of the very few events where the entire family can come, eat a great meal, and have a wonderful time”, commented Danielle Venable, Oklahoma County 4-H Youth Educator.

Please plan on joining us for an evening of great food and fun to support youth and 4-H educational programs. All proceeds for the night will go to benefit the Oklahoma County 4-H programs.

Last year, 4-H members in Oklahoma County donated more than 30,000 hours working in their communities.  Some of their projects were H.U.G.S. (Hats, Underwear, Gloves and Socks), National Youth Science Day, Lego Robotics, Shop with a Cop, and Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (S.T.E.M.) Day.   “Our Chili Supper fund raiser goes to support the wonderful work our 4-H clubs do all over the county,” Venable explained.  In addition to allowing us to offer scholarships to our 4-H members to continue their education, we also use the proceeds to help us with school enrichment projects and other 4-H projects.

 

Oklahoma County has twenty 4-H clubs that meet across the county.  “Our 4-H clubs can offer something valuable to every kid in the county,” Venable said.  For more information about the 4-H chili cook-off and/or 4-H clubs in Oklahoma County contact the OSU Extension Center 405-713-1125 or visit the Oklahoma County website at http://oces.okstate.edu/oklahoma/4-H.
