“Bring it on,” says Mammoth Lakes Police Chief “Chili-Man” Dan Watson
Cook up your favorite ‘batch of red’ in a crock-pot, give it a clever name and enter it in the first annual Five-Alarm Chili Cook-Off sponsored by the Mammoth Lakes Firefighters Association and Mammoth Lakes Police Officers Association with the assistance of Mammoth Lakes Women’s Club on Sunday night, March 25, at The Bistro, Snowcreek Athletic Club, 5-8 p.m.
Early entries include Hot Mamas Chili and Slow Lava Chili. Contest entrants receive free admission. Contact “The Chili-Man” for detailed entry information, email@example.com
Expect much hilarity with celebrity judges, “People’s Choice” award and Chief Watson’s challenge to fellow public safety officers for a side competition. There will be prizes and raffle for a “Gateway Getaway” and other great items.
Come in from the cold and join your friends for a rib-sticking dinner including chili, coleslaw, cornbread and dessert. No-host bar and music by local band Good Livin’.
The March 25 event is a fundraiser for the Mammoth Gateway Community Project.
Donations are tax-deductible: $25 donation/adult, $10 donation/child (10 and under). Detective Doug Hornbeck is the man to see for tickets: firstname.lastname@example.org Seating is limited, so get your tickets soon.
Event admission donation can apply toward a personal brick paver ($125 installed) on the path to the south “MAMMOTH LAKES” Gateway monument.
Even if you can’t attend the event, you can still own a 4×8-inch piece of the Mammoth Gateway Community Project. The path to the Gateway’s south monument will be paved with these personal laser-engraved 4×8-inch brick pavers. Bricks have room for three lines of inscription (23 characters per line including spaces and punctuation). See www.mammothgateway.org for details and an order form.
If you’d like your own personal paver to be part of this magnificent entrance to Mammoth, send a check for $125 payable to MAMMOTH COMMUNITY FOUNDATION (“Gateway”on the memo line) to Elizabeth Tenney, Gateway Project, PO Box 2428, M.L., CA 93546. Donations are tax-deductible.
Ground breaking for the Gateway is scheduled for early summer. –Press Release
