Volunteers of America Western Washington, Sky Valley to Host 2nd Annual Chili Cook-Off and Cornbread Competition

The Sky Valley Youth Coalition at Volunteers of America Western Washington is once again hosting their annual Chili Cook-Off fundraiser event! The event takes place on Friday, January 18, 2019 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Expected to be even better than the 2018 event, the 2019 Chili Cook-Off is adding a Cornbread Competition to open up the event to more participants. Cost for a full chili dinner will be $5 per adult, $4 for children under 13 years of age, and for adults 64 and over. Entertainment will be provided by the teens.

“This fundraising event was so much fun last year,” said VOAWW’s Youth Program Coordinator, Ruth Shapovalov. “We brought in funds that helped purchase food for many Sultan area teens, and to create food pantries at Sultan Middle School and Sultan High School, providing weekend meal packs for students in need.”

The Volunteers of America Western Washington campus in Sultan, WA is home to the Sky Valley Youth Coalition, or SVYC. This group of Middle School and High School students have worked together on many issues of interest to teens, including hunger, suicide prevention awareness, the dangers of smoking and vaping, and interpersonal relationships.

The 2019 Chili Cook-Off and Cornbread Competition will be held at Grace Christian Fellowship at 14030 Sultan Basin Road in Sultan, due to construction on the VOA’s A Frame (Community and Senior Center). Transportation is available from town to the church if needed.

Entry forms and rules are available on the Sky Valley Youth Coalition’s Facebook page, from the VOA Resource Center office at 701 1st Street in Sultan, or directly from Ruth Shapovalov or one of the SVYC teens. There is no cost to enter the contest, however you must provide at least four quarts of chili or a 13 x 9 size pan of corn bread (or equivalent). Prizes are gold, bronze, or silver medals and an “overall best” trophy.

New Mobile App Rewards Exploration of Sky Valley in Northwest Washington State

The Sky Valley Chamber of Commerce has launched the free Sky Valley Insider mobile app, which rewards users for visiting unique points of interest throughout Sky Valley, which includes the towns of Skykomish, Baring, Grotto, Index, Gold Bar, Startup, Sultan and Monroe, WA. Once people use the app to collect points at various destinations, they can redeem those points for rewards at area businesses. Sky Valley Insider was created using the 468 Insider platform from 468 Communications.

“The Sky Valley has adventures for every season and for every type of travel,” said Debbie Copple, Executive Director of the Sky Valley Chamber of Commerce. “As if the natural splendor weren’t enough, The Sky Valley Insider app will reward both visitors and residents for exploring the valley and shopping at local businesses within our communities.” 

Sky Valley Insider is both a wayfinding tool and a gamified way to reward people for shopping locally. The app’s Explore button takes users to the map of Sky Valley, which has pins indicating the location of the area’s unique points of interest, from heritage sites to places for outdoor recreation.  Clicking on each pin on the map gives more information about that place. Locations are assigned a point value. Pushing the “Collect Points” button while physically visiting a location will add the location’s points to a user’s point total.

Points accumulated with the Sky Valley Insider app can be redeemed for goods or services at any of the Rewards locations listed in the app.

The Sky Valley Insider app is available now as a free download on the iTunes App Store and Google Play. Local businesses interested in offering a reward to increase traffic to their place of business should contact Debbie Copple at debbie@skyvalleyvic.net.
