 Chili Cookoff ‘23

last years presentation winners

Alford Media is excited to announce the 21st Annual Chili Cookoff on Sunday, November 5th. We’ll have food, drinks, family-friendly activities, music, and chili. Every year we use this event to help a local charitable cause in need. Last year, we paired up with the North Texas Speedway Charity and helped get needed clothing items to 150 kiddos. 

More will be announced on this page soon, but we are looking for sponsors, donations, volunteers, and if you intend to come. Fill out the form below, and we’ll keep you posted!

Graham Palmer

This year, our donation will assist our Cross Rental Manager, Benji Palmer’s son Graham. Graham was born with Norrie Syndrome, a disease that affects a small percentage of blind individuals and results in them losing their ability to hear to accompany their complete blindness.

When asked, Graham would love nothing more than to take a cruise with his Dad. Unfortunately, Benji missed the last family cruise, and we aim to raise money and send Graham and Benji on the cruise they were always supposed to go on together. —Ways to donate and support Benji and Graham will be in a future update.
