Temecula: The WAVES Fourth Annual Chili Cook Off is Coming on April 8

This Year the Chili Cook Off will be held at Abbott Manor

The WAVES Project is having our 4th annual Chili Cook Off on April 8 at Abbott Manor, 40350 Camino del Vino in the Temecula Wine Country. The event begins at 1pm and lasts till to 6 p.m.

The Chili Cook Off offers tastings from several local restaurants, individuals and homegrown Chefs. A panel of military veteran judges will choose a winner and you will also have the opportunity to vote for your favorite chili for the people’s choice award.

The WAVES are a nonprofit group that provides an opportunity for veterans and their families to experience scuba diving. Scuba diving can help the returning wounded vets by promoting independence and self-confidence in many ways. The wounded veteran will benefit from becoming an underwater equal to able bodied divers and discover new personal goals

This family-friendly event includes plenty of chili to taste as well as music, food vendors, games, and raffle prizes.

All proceeds for the event goes to help the WAVES Project fund projects to help veterans.
