Want to help make a difference?  Join in the fun and become a cook or sponsor.  Since the State Bank Financial Chili Cook Off began you have helped to raise $265,000 – That’s a lot of chili!   Both DARE and the La Crosse Public Education Foundation benefit and your support, participation and involvement is appreciated.  Did you know that the money raised helps cover the cost for all of the teaching materials used by the DARE officers? 


As always, there are three ways to get involved:

#1 Become a cook and put the champion chili knowledge to the test.

You might win a prize, but you for sure will make a difference!
