The event includes an Oyster Roast, Chili Cook-Off, and live music from Hunter Ford, Mark Jackson, Eddie Bush, and The Shakin’ Martinis. Proceeds benefit Camp Happy Days.
The James Island Vikings were originally formed as a Dragon Boat team and helped raise money for cancer through Charleston’s Dragon Boat Festival. In 2010, the Vikings lost close friend Nancy Brown after a yearlong battle with breast cancer. The following year, Nancy’s partner Bo held the first Bo Roast and Chili Cook-off was held at James Island County Park. Afterwards, the Vikings made a joint decision to continue donating to cancer programs. The group selected Camp Happy Days as the beneficiary of the event.
If you think you have the best chili around, you can enter the chili cook-off. An individual or team can enter the cook-off for $25, while restaurants can enter for $50. The deadline for entries is Wednesday, January 25th. Awards will be given to best Individual/Team, Best Restaurant, and People’s Choice.
