Crye-Leike Smyrna Realtors To Host 7th Annual Chili Cook-Off Fundraiser

SMYRNA, TN., – Realtors in Crye-Leike’s Smyrna office are continuing their tradition of hosting a chili cook-off fundraiser this fall. This will be their seventh year to organize the event and proceeds from the luncheon will benefit the Dr. Snyder Foundation.


“Dr. Snyder has graciously participated as a judge in our chili cook-offs over the last few years,” said Crye-Leike Agent Debbie Michaelson. “All of the money raised from this year’s chili cook-off will go to the “Cops and Kids for Christmas” program which is a benefactor of Dr. Snyder’s foundation. Our agents felt that this program is a very deserving recipient of the large fund we hope to raise this year.”


Agents from the office will be dusting off their cook-books and preparing their best chili recipes in hopes of winning the honor as ?Best Chili Cook’ and in hopes of helping raise lots of money for the “Cops and Kids for Christmas” program.


“For our office and agents, this is our big fundraiser for the year, and a delicious one at that,” said Michaelson. “It allows the agents to come together as an office and raise money for a special community organization. We invite the community to this fun annual event and hope to see many people stop by our office for a tasty chili lunch and join our efforts in supporting this wonderful charity.”
