On Dec. 3, the Prost Brewing Tasting Room will host the first Community Chili Cook Off Fundraiser from 3 to 6 p.m. Tickets can be purchased in person at the event or through the event’s Facebook page for $5.

Although collaboratively organized by Caput Vada Catering and Prost Brewing Company, all proceeds will go toward the Rocky Mountain Raptor Program, a nonprofit organization that rescues, rehabilitates and releases local injured birds.

“The Rocky Mountain Raptor Program is a gem to have in our community,” Aisha Martinek, owner of Caput Vada Catering said in a message. “Their work in rehabilitation of raptors and education outreach within our community deserves to be recognized over and over.”

Contestants will begin setting up their displays at 3 p.m. All slots have been filled. Sampling of the chili will last from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. First, second and third place winners will receive Visa gift cards in the amounts of, $100, $50 and $25 respectively.

“(Chili is) a warm and soothing comfort food that puts a smile on my face,” Martinek said. “I hope that others share this sentiment and the event will appeal to a diverse audience group—including those who have cooking talents to showcase and those who enjoy sampling.”
