Our Fundraisers

Annual Chili Cook-Off

The Chili Cook-Off is the major fundraiser for LCG. It is held every October at the same time as the Town of Lyons Spooktacular Parade. The Stone Cup generously allows us to hold our event in their parking lot, which is the perfect location--at the end of the parade route. This event generates community involvement as entries come from throughout Lyons. Residents enter to share their delicious chili and compete for prizes.

Show your support by entering your chili at our next event, or by stopping by and sampling the delectable fare of Lyons cooks.
