Benefits and other happening around Lake Tahoe
Chili cook-off Friday to benefit cancer patient
A benefit for Teri Allmeroth will take place from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday in the South Tahoe Middle School multipurpose room. Tickets for the fundraiser are $10 for adults, $5 for children and $25 for families.
Friends and colleagues of Teri Allmeroth will host a chili cook-off as a fundraising event to help offset medical expenses, which have occurred due to Allmeroth’s battle with cancer. There are many ways in which people can help. They can enter a prize-winning chili in the cook-off, supply baked goods for the bake sale, volunteer to help at the event, or donate something to the silent auction.
To volunteer, donate items, help at the event, obtain a chili entry form, or for more information, contact Birgit Lukins at South Tahoe High School, (530) 541-4111, ext. 221.
Contestants’ responsibility includes a $25 entry fee, minimum of two gallons of chili, poster with the name and category of your chili, a source to keep your chili warm, any condiments you might need for toppings, a container for chili votes, and some decorations for your area.
