March 7, 2016 - Mark Your Calendar: 2016 Gumbo Chili Showdown

gumbo-chili-2016.pngThe 2016 Gumbo Chili Showdown will be held April 2, 2016, at 10:30 a.m., preceding the University of South Alabama Jaguars Spring Game at Ladd-Peebles Stadium.

The event supports a scholarship at the USA College of Medicine created in memory of Regan Robinson Young, a medical student at USA who was diagnosed with advanced colon cancer in 2008 at the age of 23. The scholarship provides assistance to a rising senior medical student who embodies Regan’s spirit and character.

Teams will compete against one another for the crown of Best Gumbo or Chili as judged by both the audience, faculty and celebrity judges. Each team will consist of five members. Student or resident teams cost $75, while all non-student teams are $150. This is a per team fee, not per person.

The primary form of funding for the event is through local business sponsorships. There are several levels of sponsorship, each with varying levels of incentive packages.

Tickets to attend the event are $8 -- or $10 at the door. All kids under 10 years of age are admitted for free.
