Boyd Law & ARC at Chili Cook Off
ARC of St. Lucie County participated in the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County Chili Cook-Off over the weekend. An official cook-off in July that draws a crowd of over 10,000. For over 34 years, Treasure Coast residents have come to know and love the great food, fun and live entertainment the Chili Cook-off has to offer. Each year there is a new and exciting theme and guests come to see up to 40 teams compete for awards based on best chili, team spirit and fundraising.
