The 9th annual Firefighter Chili Cook off will be held at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre on Saturday, December 7th from 2:00pm - 6:00pm, and will feature original chili recipes from competing Firefighter teams from across the state. Join us in tasting chili and casting your vote for your favorite team, all while helping us to raise funds for Hoods For Heroes to help them fight firefighter cancer!
Admission to the event is FREE! We do ask for $1 per sample of chili. 100% of the funds raised for the chili samples goes directly to Hoods for Heroes!
PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT
Standard firefighter hoods are commonly referred to as “cancer sponges” because they are made of terry cloth, which when wet can absorb toxins through direct contact with a firefighter’s head and neck. This allows dangerous particles to easily enter the bloodstream through the thinnest skin on a firefighter’s body and puts them at greater risk of developing cancer. Particulate hoods, however, are made of barrier materials, including both new particle filter layers as well as conventional moisture barriers, which shield firefighters from toxic particles.
Hoods For Heroes is committed to providing all Firefighters with the protective hoods that can help reduce head and neck exposure to carcinogens by 99%!
Firefighters risk their lives daily. Now, you can return the favor.
