The Autism Society of Greater Cleveland has hosted the ASGC Chili Cook Off for over fifteen years. Through the generosity of professional and amateur chefs, guests enjoy all the chili they can eat and help to support a wonderful cause. Prizes are awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Place Professional and Amateur Chefs and for 1st and 2nd Place People's Choice Award. Every year we have had absolutely fantastic prizes, raffle baskets, silent auction items, side boards and 50/50 raffles. Guests also enjoy wonderful music and a terrific night of fun and laughter. Plan on joining us either as a guest, chef, donor or sponsor on April 22, 2020 at The Holiday Inn in Independence Ohio.
The Autism Society of Greater Cleveland is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, an affiliate of The Autism Society of America, the largest and oldest grassroots organization advocating on behalf of the 1.5 million Americans living with autism. The proceeds from this event will help to continue to provide education, resources, advocacy, social activities and a summer camp to assist families in Northern Ohio whose lives are touched by autism. Currently 1 in 59 children are diagnosed with some form of autism. These staggering numbers, mean that our services are needed more than ever. Your contributions go a long way to help all those whose lives are impacted by autism.
