Circle of Giving

The Big Chili Cook-off Music and Arts Festival raises funds for six mountain area volunteer fire departments – Elk Creek, Evergreen, Indian Hills, Inter Canyon, Platte Canyon, North Fork, and each one of the fire departments we represent is filled with committed individuals who voluntarily defend these mountains against wild fire.  John Porter from Evergreen Fire Rescue serves as assistant to the Deputy Chief and is one of the people who works with the Big Chili Board to see that everything is in place for the day of the cook-off.  John not only came to Board meetings and helped with all the planning, but his company, WillDan Homeland Solutions gave a sizeable donation to last year’s cook-off.  People who believe in something and are willing to put their dollars behind it are why we are able to raise the money we do for our firefighters.  It is interesting and heartening that when we are working to support our volunteer departments, it is one of our Volunteer Firefighters who give to the cause.  Life is a circle of incredible incidents and amazing people.  Thank you John!
