Don't miss the 17th Annual Blues 'N' Buffett Chili Challenge! This Sunday, The Chili Challenge will be held at the Cedar Rapids Marriott Hotel from 1-4 p.m. The cost is $8 in advance and $10 at the door. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Community Health Free Clinic and the H.D. Youth Center.

The Chili Challenge is presented by the Linn County Blues Society and The Isle of Iowa Parrot Head Club. These are a couple of great organizations that raise a lot of money for local charities right here in Eastern Iowa.

This wonderful chili-tasting party was started back in 2001 and has raised over $94,000 in the last 16 years. Both charities do a lot of great things for families here in the Hawkeye State. I'm glad the event has become such a big success!

You'll sample over 30 different chilies throughout the day. There will also be plenty of cold beer, music, games and other fun entertainment. It's a perfect way to eat some great food and raise money for a good cause.
