The 14th Annual Lip-Rippin’ Chilympics Chili Cook Off, a Grand Strand tradition, will be held Sunday, October 13th, 2013 at the Wicked Tuna/Crazy Sister Marina located in beautiful Murrells Inlet , SC.
This year’s benefit, free and open to the public, begins at noon with chili samples available to purchase from over 40 area self-proclaimed “Chilimasters”. Categories of competition for this year include: Best Overall, Best Restaurant, People’s Choice, Hottest, Most Original, Best Vegetarian, Best Theme, and Best Use of South Carolina Products. Over $5,000 in cash and prizes will be given to the first place winners in each category.
This year’s event will also feature music from some of our region’s hottest bands, The Kregs, Paperwork, The Winchesters, Sideways Derby, Strike-O-Matics, The Carvers, Ten Toes Up, and national act IAMDYNAMITE will headline the event!
Also new this year will be a performance by Chief Kamu’s Hula show!
Chili sample tickets will be sold for $1.00. Beer from New South Brewing Company will also be available for purchase. The Grand Strand Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation will also be selling merchandise, including items made with biodegradable or recycled materials, information on the chapter and its activities, and how to get involved in the chapter.
This year we ask participants and attendees to bring a non-perishable or canned food item to support the efforts of South Strand Helping Hand. In addition to the chili and music, we will have local non-profits, businesses, vendors, and artists to display. A Kids’ Area with food, soft drinks, face painting, and inflatables will be available.
All proceeds from this event and others fund the projects of the Grand Strand Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation, a grassroots, non-profit, environmental organization that works to protect our oceans, waves, and beaches. Founded in 1984, Surfrider’s most important coastal environmental work is carried out by 57 chapters located along the East, West, Gulf, Puerto Rican, and Hawaiian coasts.
