100.3 The Edge's Annual Scholarship Chili Cook-Off

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The September Fund is seeking chili eaters for its 10th Annual “Guns n’ Hoses Chili Cook-Off."

Individuals or teams of up to five will compete in various categories for cash, trophies, bragging rights and other prizes on Saturday, October 31 at the Metroplex, 10800 Colonel Glenn Road in Little Rock. Cooking starts at 6 a.m., and the event opens to the public at 11 a.m.

Tasting spoons will be sold to the public with money raised from this event going towards the September Fund’s yearly scholarship awards. College-bound sons and daughters of Arkansas firemen, law enforcement officers and emergency medical technicians are eligible for the scholarships. 

Since the fund’s inception in 2003, it has raised and awarded over $100,000 in scholarships.   

Radio personality Corey Deitz from iHeartMedia’s 100.3 The Edge (KDJE/Little Rock), created the September Fund on the second anniversary of September 11, 2001 as a memorial to the first-responder civil servants who died and sacrificed on that day. The fund is registered with the state of Arkansas and has been granted tax-free status by the IRS.
