The organizations of Coventry PEACE Campus invite you to join us for our 2nd annual Coventry PEACE Chili Cook Off Fundraiser on Sunday, Feb. 23rd, 2020.

Tickets are $5 per person (or $20 per family) and include all-you-can-eat chili, fixings, sides, dessert, beverage and one vote for their favorite chili. Families will receive three “votes” for their entrance price. Attendees who wish to vote for more than one chili, can purchase extra “votes” for $5 each or 6 for $20. Raffle tickets will be available the night of the event.

Area residents are invited to enter a chili to compete in one of three categories: Best Meat, Best Vegetarian and Most Creative. Winners in each category will be announced at 7 p.m. and will receive a cash prize, a custom ARTFUL trophy and bragging rights. The cost of entering a chili is $20 and includes entry & admission, 1 vote ticket and 2 raffle tickets. Entrants are asked to pre-register their chili by Feb. 15 in order to secure a limited number of spots in each category.

All proceeds benefit Coventry P.E.A.C.E. Campus, a sustainable, supportive and collaborative facility for organizations that offer artistic and educational opportunities and community services for residents of the Heights and Greater Cleveland.

What is Coventry PEACE Campus?

When the school district sought to divest itself from the former Coventry Elementary School building in 2017, leaving its future uncertain, the leaders of all the tenant organizations and a broad base of community supporters came together in a grassroots movement to propose ways to preserve and grow the thriving culture and service ecosystem that had organically taken root there.From this effort, the Coventry PEACE Campus came into being. Coventry P.E.A.C.E., Inc. is the non-profit overseeing the maintenance, sustainability, renovation and development of the Coventry PEACE Building, which houses several local nonprofits. It is our goal to provide an accessible, sustainable, more efficient, and affordable home for these nonprofits, and to attract new organizations to the building.
