“Can You Stand the Heat?” a chili challenge for charity is looking for vendors! This year’s proceeds will be used to purchase bicycle helmets for children within the Lee County area. Each year, injuries and death occur due to bicycle-related accidents. In 2014, Lee County ranked 11th in the state of Florida for its rate of cyclist fatalities per 100,000 people with 215 bicycle-involved accidents resulting in 8 fatalities; even one child is too many. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and Highway Loss Data Institute, helmet use has been estimated to reduce the odds of head injury by 50 percent. The goal this year is provide 500 children with approved bicycle safety helmets. Vendor spacing is only $200 – we also advertise you will be with us the day of the event.

We invite you to become a vendor at our fantastic event which will include Harley enthusiasts, attorneys, judges, families and surrounding communities for a great cause! The Chili Challenge will include a fun and interactive chili cook-off contest with chili prepared on site by teams from local law firms, where the chili will be judged in front of the team’s families, community and community leaders. The chili will be judged by a panel of esteemed local judges where the finalist will have to “argue their case” on why their chili should be chosen as the best. There will also be a “People’s Choice” selection. The event will also have a kid zone, live entertainment, raffles, demonstrations and more.
