2013 Chili Cook Off Event – Don’t Miss It!

SACS Logo B&WSACS (Send a Child to School) helps children each year by providing the school supplies essential for a successful education. Each participating child receives a custom built backpack containing the required supplies for their grade level prior to the start of the school year.  This charity is dependent on community donations, volunteer assistance and fundraising events to continue its work each year.

We are thrilled to be chosen as the featured charity for the Annual Buenos Aires Chili Cook Off!  Last year, this event raised over $13,000 pesos, which we used to supply 630 children with school supplies for the 2013 school year.

There is now a date, time and place for the 2013 Chili Cook Off event – and there are daily updates as the judges and cooks are announced.  Keep up to date with the bios of each cook and judge by following the 2013 Buenos Aires Chili Cook Off Facebook Page.  SACS is the featured charity at this year’s event, let’s work together to BEAT last year’s donation total!

Where: Pagana Club, Vicente Lopez 2134 (between Uriburu and Azcuenaga), Recoleta

Date: Sunday, June 16, 2013

Time: 2:00pm – 6:00pm

Are you out of town for this fantastic event?? You can still donate to SACS!  Stay warm inside the comfort of your home, or wherever you may be, and donate via PayPal!
