32nd Annual Tailgate Party & Firefighter Chili Cook-Off …Saturday, June 2, 2012 11:00 am – 4pm


32nd Annual Padres Tailgate & Firefighter Chili Cook-Off

It’s that time of year again… time for the 32nd MDA Padres Tailgate and  Firefighter Chili Cook-Off! Mark your calendars for Saturday, June 2, 2012 so  you won’t miss this great annual event taking place at the Embarcadero Marina  Park South from 11am to 4pm. Whether you’ve never been before or go every year,

 THIS year will be one to remember.

Over 25 fire departments will be bringing their best and serving up chili to  compete for bragging rights and the title of Best Chili in San Diego. The event  will also feature all you can eat hamburgers, hot dogs, bratwurst and snacks  from Slater’s 50/50, Brazen BBQ, Pop Chips and more. And what goes better with  chili than an ice cold beer! This year you can wash down all that delicious  chili and numerous breweries. There will also be Coca Cola, Honest Tea and Monster Energy Drink on hand as well as Columbia Crest Wines.

Admission is $45 for adults and $20 for children and also includes a ticket  to the Padres vs. Diamondbacks game that evening. You can purchase your chili  cook-off tickets over the phone at (858) 492-9792. They will also be available  at the gate the day of the event.

The funds raised will stay in San Diego and Imperial Counties to benefit  those affected by one of 43 neuromuscular diseases. MDA uses the funds collected  to fulfill their threefold mission of research, program services, and education.  Seventy-seven cents of every dollar raised is spent towards this mission.  Specifically, funds raised will help their patients by providing medical  services, support groups, and research. Proceeds also benefit a summer camp for  children ages 6-17 at Camp Cuyamaca, a muscle disease clinic at Children’s  Hospital and assistance with repairs of wheelchairs and leg braces. The MDA does  not receive any government funding and relies solely on businesses, programs and  events such as the Padres Tailgate and Firefighter Chili Cook-Off to help with  annual funding.

Hope to see you there!
