The American Culinary Federation, Southwest Florida Chefs Association, will hold its second annual Chili Cook-Off on Sunday, July 10 at The Pink Shell Beach and Resort Spa on Fort Myers Beach.

The chili cook off is a benefit for the Harry Chapin Food Bank. The public is invited to taste the chili entries after 5 p.m. Those attending are asked to bring generous nonperishable food donations for the food bank. Pink Shell is providing a band, so come for music, fun and great chili.

Individuals can vote on the People’s Choice and Most Unique entries. The official judging will start at 6 p.m. and the winner will be announced around 7 p.m. Beverages will be available for purchase at the Pink Shell bars.

The Chili Cook-Off is limited to 20 team or individual entries. The cost is $35 per entry.
