During our annual Dream Ride Firefighter Chili Cook-Off, The Hometown Foundation, Inc. promotes friendly competition among local fire personnel as they compete to see whose chili will reign supreme. Those fire stations that win one of the coveted Firefighter Chili Cook-Off prizes receive valuable donations for their local stations as well as ultimate bragging rights, at least until next year!

Now entering its 5th year, The Dream Ride Firemen Chili Cook-off has more than tripled in size and to date has awarded over $60,000 to local fire stations. The competition is completely free of charge to enter and The Hometown Foundation, Inc. provides every team with an IGA gift certificate to cover the cost of food.
