How Does the Chili Tasting Work? Each team prepares a chili that is unique to their combinations of ingredients and seasonings.  Tasting Bands allow you to taste all chili prepared for the People’s Choice award. After you purchase your tasting band you can visit each team and ask to taste their People’s Choice chili. You will receive a 2oz. cup and spoon. Some teams may provide condiments such as cheese, sour cream, crackers, etc.

What is the People’s Choice Award? This award is chosen by YOU!  The cooks have gone through a lot of trouble to entice you to vote for their chili! With each band purchase you will receive 2 voting tickets. After you have tasted all of the chili’s, you VOTE for your favorite by placing the ticket in the ballot box each team has on their table. The team with the most tickets wins the People’s Choice award! Additional voting tickets/bands can be purchased. Everyone wishing to taste chili MUST purchase a tasting band.

What is This Event Supporting? Proceeds from the Code Red Chili Cook-off will benefit the many projects of Lane Regional Medical Center Foundation. The Foundation  supports Lane’s mission of investing in the future by providing access to the very best healthcare services, technologies and programs available.
