The Puerto Vallarta Chili Cook-Off!

Come on down and join us for amazing chili & live music!

All proceeds support children and the less fortunate in Banderas Bay through the Jay Sadler Project.








Who knew supporting your community could be as easy as eating a bowl of chili?

The Chili Cook-Off is the main fundraising tool for the Jay Sadler Project (JSP).

The Jay Sadler Project is a Jalisco-based non-profit doing good works in the less-fortunate communities of the greater Bay of Banderas area.

They provide necessary resources for Daycares, Senior Citizens Homes, Schools for the Disabled, and Public Schools in rural areas.

JSP works with government social agencies to identify those in need as well as with DIF on Community Relations Projects.
