It's time to raise some money and stuff your face!

Join us for The 19th Annual Blues 'N' Buffet Chili Challenge! It all happens on Sunday, February 10th at the Cedar Rapids Marriott Hotel on Collins Road.

This event is sponsored by the Linn County Blues Society and The Isle of Iowa Parrot Head Club. Proceeds from the challenge benefit the Eastern Iowa Arts Academy and the H.D. Youth Center.

I've been a part of this awesome event since the very beginning. The day is always filled with music, chili tasting, cold drinks, fellowship and fun! It's a great way to sample dozens of different chilis for one low price.

Speaking of that, tickets are just $8 in advance and $10 at the door. Visit lcbs.org and isleofiowa.com to make your purchase and to learn more about the event. And remember, all proceeds will benefit two great local charities.

I'll see you on February 10th at the Cedar Rapids Marriott Hotel!
