As it draws closer, please get the word out to your friends, families and colleagues about why we exist. It seems that in spite of this blog, and in spite of our webpage which can be found here, and in spite of our facebook page which can be found here, there are people all over Evergreen and the surrounding communities who have no idea what we really do.We have a lot of fun – that’s true, and I suppose we’re pretty good at advertising all the fun things; but The Big Chili exists for the sole purpose of Raising Money for Our Volunteer Fire Departments. Men and women from Indian Hills, Elk Creek, , Inter Canyon, Platte Canyon, Evergreen and North Fork fire districts volunteer as firefighters to keep our mountain homes safe. This means when there is a fire or other emergency, our firefighters come home from a full day at their job, don their gear, and go fight. They are not sitting at the firehouse waiting for the call. They are not paid. To top it off, our firefighters frequently pay for their gear out of their own pockets.
