Boots, live music and delicious chili are all expected to be seen this Sunday from 1 p.m. until 7 p.m. at Penny's at the Duke in Lake Worth as hundreds of people attend the Fourth Annual Gay Chili Cook Off, a benefit for Compass’ LGBT youth group.
Hosted by Penny’s at the Duke owner, Penny Johnson, the event welcomes fellow gay and gay friendly bars to cook up some spicy chili and compete for the top spot in hopes of winning the prestigious Top Chili Chef Award.
Some of the bars participating this year include chili submissions from the Mad Hatter Lounge, H.G. Roosters and Fort Dix.
As stated on the event’s Facebook page, attendees will be able to taste and vote for their favorite chili.
But, chili won't be the only thing that will leave a good taste in your mouth.
The cook off is the top fundraising event for the local Compass LGBT youth group.
According to Compass’ official website, there is a $5 minimum donation that must be made to enter the event with all proceeds going to the group.
Compass is an LGBT advocacy group based in Lake Worth that is dedicated to “stereotypes by challenging long-standing misconceptions about the character of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community”, as stated in their online mission statement.
Due to the large amount of people expected to attend, event organizers are recommending people to take advantage of Uber services for an easier parking experience.
With a dedication to improving the lives of the local LGBT youth as a core ingredient, the fourth annual gay chili cook off promises to serve up some of the best tasting chili this side of the Mason Dixon Line.
