Four bands: ChainDrive, Shattered, Damage Control and Incinr8 will perform live. Julie Raynor of PIXY103FM will broadcast from the event while Matty B emcees! The $15 general admission will include plenty of chili, voting privileges, a cash bar, great entertainment, and chances to win door prizes such as a two night stay at the Resort and Conference Center or apparel donated by Cisco Brewers! Children under thirteen years of age will be admitted for free. Eating some great food while helping a good cause is guaranteed to warm you right up this time of year!
