The second annual Chili Throwdown (Cook off) and Rail Jam benefitting the Education Foundation for Bend La Pine Schools is this Sunday at the Athletic Club of Bend. Chairperson Cheri Helt says the Foundation helps out hundreds of kids each year participate in after school sports.  "We’re raising money for all the kids in town that afford to pay for sporting events.  Because there is a fee for sporting events for kids in our middle and high school.  And as a Foundation, we grant money back to the school system to pay for that. And that's what this event is for. Because in this economy this is a really hard thing for the kids and we want to make sure they can participate in sports." Helt says the chili cook off is one of the most popular events.  20 restaurants will be participating in this years' contest.  Not only will there be official judging, the public will have a chance to cast a vote too.  Also, a Rail Jam presented by Skjersaa's promises to be a big crowd pleaser.  Your $10 tickets buys you unlimited chili and entry to the rail jam.  It's this Sunday from 2 to 6 pm.
