Hello! It’s Gabi again. From my very first day of work Art House has been buzzing with preparations for the 2nd Annual ABC Chili Cook-Off. I got to help create a few of the marketing materials for the event and I loved getting to hear all about how wonderful the inaugural event was. Last year we raised $3,000 for Art House, helping to fund our many community and Arts-in-Education programs. This year, we’re hoping to do even better!
On February 11th a group of artists, staff and board members (Billy Ritter, Chris Dodson, Sally Hudak, Dan Spencer, Adam Stalder, Brinsley Tyrell, and our very own Laila Voss) huddled into Art house and over the course of four hours created 100 chili bowls. Once they are glazed, these bowls will become part of the ABC Cook-Off (Artists-Bowls-Chili): the first 100 ticket buyers for the event will get to choose a bowl for sampling all the chili! Participants will be able have unlimited taste of the delicious recipes our 9- 10 contenders have made before voting for the very best 2017 chili concoction. The event will be taking place on March 11th from 1- 3 pm here at the Art House (3119 Denison Avenue, Cleveland OH 44109) and will feature great chili, fabulously talented people and an incredible raffle for guests to participate in. What else could be a more will be the perfect break from the cold (then warm then hot then cold again) weather? I personally can’t wait to see how this event brings the community together and to see who gives last year’s winning team, Goya and the Gringo,a run for their trophy!
