Posted:

ALPHARETTA, Ga. – Police officers, firefighters and other public safety staff will put on their chef’s aprons to create dozens of competing pots of homemade chili at the Alpharetta Chili Cook-off featuring the University of Georgia versus University of Florida game on Nov. 2 at 2:30 p.m. on Milton Avenue in downtown Alpharetta. Alpharetta High School and the UGA Red Coat Alumni Band members will play together.

Approximately 20 different chili samples will be on the menu to try along with hot dogs, hamburgers, soft drinks and beer. Music will also be playing to get the party started before the Dawgs take on the Gators on the big screen. Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets to get comfortable while cheering on their favorite team.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. Entry to the event site and viewing of the game are free.

Chili cook-off tickets include unlimited chili samples, one hot dog or hamburger and one non-alcoholic beverage. Additional food will be available at the event on a per item charge. Tickets can be purchased at the event.

“Safety is something that never can be taken for granted. The mission of the Alpharetta Public Safety Foundation is to promote safety in the Alpharetta community so that we not only feel safe, but improve our safety by actively supporting our community’s police officers and firefighters,” said Tom Deets, managing partner of SharpShooters USA. “Now, the community can help support the mission of the Alpharetta Public Safety Foundation with this awesome event.”
