October 27th, 2017 — Here at Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® we hosted our 5th Annual Chili Cook-Off on a cool, windy Friday afternoon. Company-wide teams come together to simmer their best recipes and compete for bragging rights to the best chili. Aside from fun, food and live music, performed by our very own Clifton Jansky, this event kicks off our holiday ‘Bear Hunt’. Open to the public, our chili cook-off costs a modest $2 entry or 1 stuffed animal to enter.
All of the funds and stuffed animals go directly to our ‘Bear Hunt’ efforts. To date, we have collected well over 125,000 thousand stuffed animals and bears and many more thousands in monetary donations. Everything we collect benefits the local Children’s Hospital, Ronald McDonald House, Police and Fire Stations, plus the well-loved stuffed animals are distributed to local pet shelters.
Our goal this year is to collect as many bears and stuffed animals as possible to spread the love this upcoming holiday season. Please visit one of our office locations near you:
