ROSEVILLE, CA – More than 25 local community leaders will put on their chefs’ aprons and go head-to-head in a special chili cook-off to benefit a local anti-bullying program for middle and high schools.
The 2017 Roseville Celebrity Chili Cook-Off will be held on Friday, March 17 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Maidu Community Center.
The chefs will include Roseville City Mayor Susan Rohan, Roseville Vice Mayor Bonnie Gore, Roseville City Councilmember Scott Alvord, Placer County Supervisors Jack Duran and Kirk Uhler, Roseville Police Chief Daniel Hahn, Assemblymember Kevin Kiley, St. Anna’s Parish Father Chris Flesoras, Fox 40’s Paul Robins, school leaders and many more.
Proceeds will benefit local schools that will have the opportunity to participate in a Point Break Anti Bullying Workshop.
“The community will gather for a fun food competition, but the impact the donations will have can be profound,” said Rob Maxey, director of the anti-bullying campaign Point Break. “Bullying has devastating long term effects on children as they grow older and we believe we can make a big difference in stopping such destructive behavior.”
Tickets are $25 each and can be purchased at or by calling (916) 857-0660 or visiting us on Facebook at 2017 Roseville Celebrity Chili Cook-off.
