This year will mark the twelfth annual Chilirhea. The first event was in 2004 as an excuse for a close group of friends to reunite after college. They wanted an annual occasion that would bring them back to Fayetteville for a great time, no matter where careers or families took them. They decided to hold a chili cook-off and so “Chilirhea” began. The first Chilirhea had about 15 people in a backyard. By 2009, there were multiple sponsors, 15 teams and over 125 people gathered on the front lawn of a house despite snow and ice. In 2010, the event became tied to the charitable cause of helping cure Alzheimer’s. The friends decided to host an amazing party but also create a tool to give back to the community of NWA. There were 250+ people at Pratt Place Barn and over $6K was given to Alzheimer’s. In 2011, there were 25 teams, over 500 people and $12,000 was raised. In 2012 the event once again raised the bar raising over $20k Most recently, Chilirhea exceeded its $35k goal in 2014 by raising $37,000, beat its $40k goal in 2015 raising $70,000 and surpassed its goal of $75,000 in 2016 by raising $82,000! Help us continue to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer's Arkansas, The Broyles Foundation and the UAMS Reynolds Institute on Aging by hitting our goal of $90,000! For more details visit http://www.chilirhea.net
