Join us as we kick off the Daytona 500 with a Charity Chili Cook-Off, benefiting the PAWS Fund!

For you die hard race fans, we are opening early at 1:30 PM to get your engines running before the green flag is waved.  The race begins at 2:30 PM.

Bring your chili-cooking “A-game” and submit your best entry to win a hefty cash prize, swag, and most importantly the coveted “SOMD Bragging Rights”… Not a chili champ? No worries, come on down and taste the entries with us, and help select the “people’s choice”. We’ll also have door prizes, giveaways, raffles, and if the crowd insists, a little karaoke…

Share this event, invite your friends, and bring a crowd for charity. All proceeds go to the PAWS Fund, helping Veterinarians help animals in need.

About the Chili Cook-Off:
To register, contact us through our Facebook page, comment below, or talk to Anna at the bar whilst sipping a legendary $1 draft. There’s a $5 entry fee to submit each chili, and please bring enough to share with those patrons desiring to taste your entry.

For tasters, $5 gets you 4 tasting tickets (may be purchased at the bar, day of the event) to sample the creations. A “people’s choice” winner will be selected by ticket count. Bar opens at 1:30 PM, chili is due in by 4:00 PM, and judging is at 6:00 PM. A limited number of crock-pots will be available to borrow for those that may not already have one.

About the PAWS Fund:
Veterinarians spend tens of thousands of dollars every year to provide free and low cost care to abandoned pets and to pets whose owners may be experiencing a financial crisis.

PAWS established the PAWS Fund in partnership with the Veterinary Care Foundation, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable foundation, to provide treatment for animals that would otherwise not receive care.

Unlike most charitable organizations 100% of every charitable dollar contributed is used to directly fund the care of animals in our community. Funds are used for Good Samaritan cases, companions of families in financial crisis, and pets injured or displaced due to local disaster (weather events, fire, etc).

Woody’s Tavern is committed to supporting our local business in Indian Head, MD, and many charitable causes. We thank you for your continued support and patronage, and love you for making this establishment the awesome watering hole that it is. See you Sunday!
