The Exceptional Foundation’s Chili Cook-Off takes place each year on the first Saturday in March from 10:30 AM – 3:00 PM. This is a family friendly event with food, live music, kidzone with moonwalk, clowns, contests and beverages. We are excited to be the title sponsor for this year’s event! The 14th Annual MortgageBanc Chili Cook-Off will be on Saturday, March 3rd in the Macy’s parking lot of Brookwood Village Mall.
The Chili Cook-Off has developed a loyal following across a diverse audience base. This is one of the year’s first outdoor events and most people are ready to get outside. There is an energetic atmosphere and a unique camaraderie exists amid the tongue in cheek, yet somehow serious, competition between the chili cooking teams who vie for the judges’ and public’s approval in hopes of taking home a trophy for their particular chili recipe. While the sponsors and their teams focus on winning the chili contest, more than 11,000 attendees from all across the Birmingham area enjoy the decorated booths, good-humored rivalry, diverse chili and live music. The kidzone features a moonwalk, tattoos and clowns.
Proceeds from the Chili Cook-Off are a significant source of funding for the programs at The Exceptional Foundation. The Exceptional Foundation strives to meet the social and recreational needs of individuals of all ages that are mentally challenged. The Exceptional Foundation provides year-round services to individuals with special needs who have reached the age of 21 and no longer receive services from school systems. Programs are also offered to the school-age exceptional population through after-school activities and a summer camp. Daily programs include field trip outings, competitive sports teams and various social events. The overall daily goals of The Exceptional Foundation are to enhance the lives of its participants through a variety of activities and to provide a community for the mentally challenged population and their families.
