"Red, White, Blue, and the Badge” Chili Cook-off Brings Community Together for a Great Cause
On Oct. 26, students and families gathered for a greatly anticipated Liberty Christian tradition, the 15th Annual Chili Cook-off. This year honored and raised tuition assistance for military and first responder families.
Nearly 20 Liberty clubs and parent organizations served delicious chili, side dishes, and desserts out of their artistically decorated booths in contribution to the celebrated event. The cheer booth won best chili. Best side dish and best decorated booth went to the 3rd grade boys’ moms. The award for best specialty meat went to the basketball team, and the dance team won best student booth overall.
As students and families gathered in fellowship, a Huey helicopter made an appearance and landed near the stadium to further perpetuate the patriotic theme.
Between the first and second quarter of the game, all military and first-responder personnel attending from the community lined up on the football field. Everyone from varsity football players to Lower Schoolers paid their respects by shaking hands or delivering proud applause.
Overall, the Annual Chili Cook-off was a booming success. With a record number of booths and a central patriotic message, joy was evident throughout the event.
