Each year, CASI sanctions nearly 500 chili cookoffs internationally as qualifying events for the Annual CASI Terlingua International Chili Championship ©, known as TICC. These sanctioned local events raise over $1,000,000 for local and national charities. This annual ultimate chili championship is held the first Saturday of November at Rancho CASI de los Chisos, near Terlingua, Texas. The CASI Championship event is a fundraiser for local Terlingua charities and organizations and also funds CASI's National Scholarship programs.
To create and maintain a structure that promotes chili cookoff events which bridge the gap between local charitable organizations, the community and corporations.
CASI sanctioned chili cookoffs are intended to bring local communities and competitive chili cooks together to raise awareness of chili and raise funds for the local charities, while supporting the community with wholesome, enriched competitive cooking events.
"Making a positive difference in someone's life with every pot of chili cooked."
This vision portrays the attitude of every CASI cook as we fire up our stove to cook a pot of chili at a charity or community CASI sanctioned event.
