The Chili Cook-off, a fundraiser for the Giving Tree Christmas Program, will be held on Saturday, Sept. 28 from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Village Green.
The cost is $10 and each person receives 10 two-ounce portions. The winner is chosen by a vote. Those in attendance can vote three times.
Some of the teams competing this year are: The Orcas Island Lions Club, The Orcas Island Kiwanis Club, Island Market, County Roads Department, Lower Tavern, Island Skillet, Orcas Island Historical Museum and Mijitas.
The Lions and Kiwanis are having a contest to see which one of them either wins or comes closer to winning. The losing team has to provide a picnic for the winner.
The event is sponsored by Orcas Family Connections, The Orcas Island Lions Club, Island Market and the Orcas Island Farmers' Market. Beer will be provided by Island Hoppin' Brewery.
