31st St. Thomas Chili Cook-Off on Sunday

More than 75 chili teams will create vegetarian and beef chili from scratch to be judged and awarded best of the Virgin Islands at the 31st annual chili cook-off Sunday at Brewers Beach on St. Thomas. Festivities begin at 11 a.m., according to an announcement from Seaborne Airlines, a major sponsor of the annual fundraiser.

All proceeds from the event are donated to local charities, including Dial-A-Ride, Family Resource Center, Queen Louise Home for the Aged, St. Thomas Rescue, St. Thomas Sail and Power Squadron, and others. Two $1,000 scholarships to the University of the Virgin Islands are awarded to local students.

"We take pride in supporting almost 300 local organizations focused on the most prevalent needs of our island communities," Seaborne Sales Manager Mora Scotland said in the company’s statement. "We believe this commitment to help enrich and expand the lives of our neighbors makes the USVI a better place to live for all," she said.
