Mr. Lee. And a lot of chili cooking. Over
the last year Mr. Lee has been to eighteen different
chili-cook off's and accumulated points for his chili at
each. The point total enabled him to qualify for
the biggest cook-off of them all in Terlingua. (that's
in the Big Bend area of Texas). 2005 is filling up
quickly. One of Mr. Lee's favorite events is the
chili cook-off held at Mountain States Children's Home,
just east of Longmont, tentatively scheduled for
September. It's all part of his desire to cook
great chili and help non-profits raise funds. Mr.
Lee belongs to the Colorado Chili Pod. A
non-profit organization that "makes a difference
through chili" by helping charitable organizations
around the country make money with chili cookoffs.
