Local artist Chili Cold Blood is proud to present the Chili Cold Blood Chili Cook-Off at The White Horse on Saturday, February 9, 2013 from 4pm to 8pm. All proceeds for the event will be collected in memory of Nick Curran, an Austin-based musician who influenced countless artists and passed away from cancer on October 6, 2012, and donated to an Austin-based NPO that supports musicians through access to affordable health care (to be officially announced on February 9, 2013).
The Chili Cold Blood Chili Cook-Off will also serve as a drive for travel-sized hygiene items including soap, shampoo and toothbrushes in support of Front Steps and ARCH (Austin Research Center for the Homeless). For every item donated, guests will receive one chili tasting ticket (tickets also available for purchase: $1/ticket or $5 for 6 tickets).
