The event focused on local chili cooks divided into professional and amateur categories with separate awards for each. In addition, the popular local band, The PortaJohns, provided entertainment and there was a kids zone with free children's games and activities including a water slide. Proceeds from the event benefit The Children's Center, The Coastal Discovery Museum, Operation R&R, Marine Corps Scholarship Fund, Week of Champions and several other youth programs.
