Annual Chili Cook-Off/Dessert Bake-Off, Friday, Oct. 30

Leave your lunch home and bring your favorite Halloween costume or accessory to the 13th annual Johns Hopkins University United Way Chili Cook-Off/Dessert Bake-Off. Grab your co-workers and head to the Glass Pavilion in Levering Hall on the Homewood campus, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Friday, Oct. 30, to celebrate Halloween with tasty treats, a costume contest, raffles, and more!

Enjoy some spookily good chili and desserts, all while raising funds to support organizations providing services in our surrounding communities. Admission is $5 with a Halloween costume or accessory, $10 without a Halloween costume or accessory. Admission includes the opportunity to sample and vote for your favorite chili and bake-off items (while they last), and a catered lunch including chili, cornbread, dessert, and drink. In addition, guests can purchase raffle tickets for a variety of JHU items, which will be drawn and awarded onsite.

If you're interested in entering your best vegetarian chili, the deadline is 5 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 27.

Thanks to the generous sponsorship of the Johns Hopkins Federal Credit Union, all funds raised will benefit the Johns Hopkins Neighborhood Fund through the Johns Hopkins University United Way Campaign. For more information, visit
