60th Anniversary Chili Cook-Off


HONOLULU — Lima Kokua announces our 60th Anniversary Chili Cook-Off. The pleasure of your company is requested on July 30, 2022 at the Church of the Crossroads from 3:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. for an afternoon of fellowship and fun. Tickets are $25 and may be purchased from individual members, online, or at the door. Please join us as we celebrate 60 years of fundraising and contributions to those causes who are either or both under-funded and/or under-appreciated. CY 2021 marked a milestone of giving with nearly $50,000 donated to various organizations.

The cook-off will be held under canopy on the great lawn of the historic Church of the Crossroads. Any contestant (being a person who brings a chili intended for entry into the competition) will be entitled to 1 free admission per chili entry. Please refer to the event flyer and contest rules below for further details. As a reminder, the Church has graciously allowed participants at this event to bring their own beer, should they wish to do so, but please be mindful that we are guests in others’ sacred space to be respectful of that. Lima Kokua will provide wine, drinks, and light pupus before dinner.

2022 marks Lima Kokua’s return to hosting our annual chili cook-off fundraiser after a nearly two-year hiatus due to limitations imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic. It also marks what would have been, under normal circumstances, our 26th annual cook-off.

Lima Kokua, Inc. is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization who is dedicated to assisting under-funded and under-served organizations. Please consult your tax professional to see if your donation is tax-exempt.
