The 1st Annual Chili with a Kick event (http://www.chiliwithakick.com) was a GREAT success! I was deeply honored to be the MC and Announcer for the day. Chili with a Kick is a Big Red Ball Charitable Foundation event that benefited Youth Home (http://www.youthhome.org/) this year. The day went from 9AM till 10PM at Dickey-Stephens Park in North Little Rock, Arkansas… Throughout the day I kept on making announcements and spouting out funny stuff for almost 13 hours and it seemed to have just flown by with all of the activities. By the end of the day I was as sunburned and as red as a chili, but glad I didn’t get kicked. The goal of this event was to raise money and awareness for Youth Home and these folks hit their mark.
We had kick ball games going all day, a chili contest with judges and people’s choice winners, bands from all over rocking with incredible sounds, games like flip cup, 4 square, bean bag toss, lots of drinks, GREAT food, and more. There were plaques and trophies handed out to the chili cook-off winners. The kickball tournament final winner had to be determined by sudden death flip cup and both teams presented VERY impressive trophies. I was so touched when I was also presented a beautiful plaque and it blew me away to see my picture and comedy logo on the Jumbotron. The entire day was a BLAST and the LR Kick Ball folks (http://www.lrkickball.com/) are too freakn’ fun, funny, and just plain ol’ great people. I wanted to point out a VERY special person that worked her butt off and that is Erin Jester! That girl did an INCREDIBLE job along with all of the other volunteers.
I would like to send out a huge thanks to the sponsors that included The Painted Pig, 107 Liquor, The Meat Shoppe in Gravel Ridge, Central Arkansas Dream Scapes, Budweiser, Section 8 and of course ALL of the folks at The Point 94.1 (Shanon, Chuck, Sharpe, Mike, Jeff, Jennifer, Eric, and others). I would like to thank EVERYONE that came out to support this very worthwhile event. I also want to thank all of my friends for hanging out with me. One last shout out to Blake for the extra promo… YOU ALL ARE AWESOME!!!
I was asked to do this again next year, so HECK YEAH!!! I’M THERE!!! See you all then or at my next comedy show / event!
Thank you all!!!
