Oklahoma County 4-H chili cook-off, auction to benefit club programs
The annual Oklahoma County 4-H Chili Cook-Off & Auction will begin at 6 p.m. Jan. 30 at the OSU Extension Center, 2500 NE 63.
A donation of $5 per person is suggested for the evening event that will include chili with all the fixings and the silent and live auction. The Sweet Shoppe also will have sweets made by 4-H members.
“We are very excited about this event. The entire family can come, eat a great meal, and have a wonderful time and raise money for an excellent organization,” said Mindy McNeil, Oklahoma County 4-H youth educator.
All proceeds from the evening will benefit Oklahoma County 4-H programs.
Last year, Oklahoma County 4-H members donated more than 30,000 hours working in their communities. Some of their projects included National Youth Science Day, Lego Robotics, Shop with a Cop and the H.U.G.S. project.
“The Chili Cook-Off is a fundraiser that supports the hard work our 4-H clubs do all over the county,” McNeil said. “We offer scholarships to our 4-H members for national conferences, as well as raise funds to help with school enrichment programs, 4-H camps and member projects.”
Oklahoma County has 13 4-H clubs that meet across the county.
