We are excited to announce that we will be celebrating the 42st Annual St. George Island Charity Chili Cookoff on March 2th 2024!
As you may know, the Chili Cookoff is not just an awesome weekend on St. George Island, it’s also a VERY BIG portion of our SGIVFD budget and we must find a way to keep the fire department funded. Please consider attending these events or donating.
The festivities start off with a 4-person best ball scramble golf tournament hosted by the award winning St James Golf Course on Friday, March 1. The tournament includes a $15,000 hole in one prize, prizes for top 3 teams, buffet, and much more! RSVP only.
Format: Foursome Best Ball Scramble
Team Selection: Bring your own team or we will place you on a foursome.
Entry Fee: $100 per player, which is tax deductible (Make checks out to SGI Chili Cookoff). Cost includes green fee, and practice balls. No food is included for the fee.
