On Saturday, March 18, 2017, Survivors on Purpose, Inc. (SOP)  will be hosting their 4th annual Chili Cook-off  Fundraiser at Hugh Smith Recreation Center in Arlington!
 
 
This non-profit organization is made up of breast cancer survivors, caretakers, families and supporters who are faithful advocates for all women that are impacted by this diagnosis. Focused on raising community awareness about Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC), SOP aims to form partnerships and alliances with researchers, scientists, doctors and medical educators in their efforts to identify root causes of triple-negative breast cancer. Their inspiring goal is to eliminate the fear and silence about breast cancer and replace it with knowledge about TNBC that is prevalent in the African American community.

The event is open to the general public and will offer a taste of some delicious chili recipes, as well as a fun time with games and family activities, such as: raffles, children’s games, and a hotdog bar. This year, the Arlington Fire Department will be among the competitors and is challenging both past winners and new comers with their tasty chili recipe!
 
 
If you’re interested in competing with your own chili recipe, the team fee is $50 and Registration  closes on March 5, 2017.

 
 
Even if you are not planning on competing in the cook-off, you can still bring your friends or children to enjoy the event with opportunities to shop local vendors, learn some valuable fire safety lessons from the Arlington Fire Department, and get an up-close look at the fire truck while taking photos with the crew!
