The Central Wyoming Chapter of the American Petroleum Institute is proud to host the 26th Annual A.P.I. Chili Cook-Off to be held February 17, 2018 from 11am-2pm at the Casper Events Center. The theme this year is 'Star Wars' and for a $10 ticket  (per person) you'll get to sample over 40 'Out of This World' red and green chili offerings.  Plus you'll get to check out the creativity of each of the contestant teams as they decorate their booth and dress the part with this year's theme in mind. There will also be a calcutta and welcome event on Friday night, Feb. 16th at 5:00 p.m. at the Casper Events Center that is open to all.

The chili cookoff raises funds for college scholarships as well as raising funds for local non-profits including, CAP (Children’s Advocacy Project), Central Wyoming Hospice Program, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Meals on Wheels, The ARC of Natrona County, Special Olympics Wyoming, Jason’s Friends, Brain Injury Association, Safe Kids of Central Wyoming, Wyoming Food for Thought and Seton House as well as many of the medical funds established in our community.

There will also be a cash raffle with prizes of $10,000, $1500 and 5 prizes of $500 cash all for a $20 ticket price, only 2000 of these available. A.P.I. will also be raffling off an item of their choice as in years past.
