On Sunday afternoon, August 11th, the Stone Hearth Inn will host the Eighth Annual Hot Dog Cook-Off. Proceeds from this family friendly charitable event will benefit the Chester-Andover Family Center and Chester-Andover youth athletics. The event takes place from 1-4 at the Stonehearth and will feature music, prizes and the famous Chester-Andover Family Center Silent Auction and Basket Raffle. The best part, however, is the rivalry among the “hot dog “chefs. So far, ten chefs have entered the competition and will be cooking “dogs” during the Cook-Off. Past attendees already know that these are not your average dogs. Chef participants get very creative, many going beyond toppings and crafting actual “dogs” from scratch. This is a culinary extravaganza and the competition is fierce.
The price of admission entitles you to all the hotdogs you can eat and a chance to vote for your favorite dog. Last year, the Smith family won the “Best Dog in Show”. Will they retain their title? Join us at the Stone Hearth Inn from 1-4 on Sunday, August 11 and vote for your favorite dog. Admission is $20 for a family, $10 for adults and $5 for students.
Your participation will support the Chester-Andover Family Center Food Shelf and Financial Assistance program helping local residents struggling to make ends meet and provides funding for local youth athletic programs.
