The Great Chili Cook-Off

The Great Chili Cook-off is an annual event that was held on October 31 this year and hosted by The Rotary Clubs of Mooresville Lake-Norman, Mooresville, Top of the Lake and Troutman to benefit local charities. Top of the Lake Rotary Club president, Jeremy Katz, invited Team SPORK high school robotics team to provide some reliable hands and feet to support the event.  The event raised $50,000 and had tons of fun things to enjoy like listening to the Back Road Band, shopping at local vendors booths, eating treats from local vendors and of course, tasting 50 different recipes of chili. Kids had their own “zone” to play in where some of our Team SPORK seniors volunteered their help.  Team SPORK volunteers also spent the first part of the event running between competing chili vendors delivering cups, napkins and whatever else a chili contestant needed. Of course, none of that kept them from trying all of the chili too!
