The Twisted Saints Riding Club and Camp Victory is inviting the public for one of its annual fundraisers, the 4th Annual Chili Feed and Chili Cook-off.

Come join us for an afternoon of food and fellowship with chili. With an Chili cook-off assortment of chilies from mild to wild; there’s surely a flavor for everyone! Rest assured we will have a mild chili to provide in generous amounts.

Why: Everyone loves to eat. Social gatherings after a long winter in hibernation bring smiles of joy to our faces. When you can eat, catch up on a long winter with friends and family and benefit a great cause at the same time, everyone wins!!!! But the best winner is benefitting the camper scholarship program at Camp Victory. We truly feel that no child should be denied the opportunity to attend summer camp based on economic insufficiency. Camp Victory wants to encourage all children to be a CV camper and to experience those lifelong values and memories, friendships, and knowing the Lord.

YOU CAN make a difference in the lives of children.

When: Saturday, April 6, 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM

Where: The Black Top Bar and Grill is located at 30 Main St. E. Elgin, MN – (507) 871-3600

Ticket Price: $10/person (includes bowl of chili +trimmings and cornbread) and may be purchased at the door. Children under 10 are free.

Other activities happening during the event: Silent Auction!
