This event is a fundraiser hosted by the Rotary Club of Tahoe-Incline, also known as the morning Rotary Club. The club primarily raises money for local education and youth groups, such as the Boy Scouts.
Tickets are $50 — $60 on the day of the event — for beer and chili tasting and a chance to win a Diamond Peak season pass in the grand prize drawing (the winner need not be present to win). Western dress is encouraged. Country Western music and line dancing will be provided by Vaquera Vikki.
The Chili Cook-off is a chance for local restaurants to show off their favorite chili recipes and enter the competition for the People’s Choice Award. Local and regional craft breweries will be showcased in the beer tasting.
