The Black Belt Community Foundation will host the event to bring the community together and raise funds for a good cause.  The event starts at 5 p.m.

On Thursday, reliable Chevrolet presented the group with a check to help sponsor the chili Cook-off coming up.

“The funds will help with the overarching cost of putting on the event,” BBCF president Josh Wilkerson said. “In the past, this has been a huge community-involved event. Everyone looks forward to this event every year.”

Over 20 groups have signed up for the cook-off this year whether to sponsor or compete in the cook-off. This is one of the bigger donations that the black belt foundation has received so far and according to Wilkerson it’s a big help.

“Reliable is kind of a cornerstone for the city in support of groups like this,” Wilkerson said. “Support like this makes it possible to do what we do. We are a complete volunteer board so funding like this gives us the ability to promote and put on fun events but also acknowledge local non-profit organizations that are doing the work.”
