Print Article

All Saints’ Church in Columbia Falls will host its 12th Annual Chili Open on Saturday, March 9. This event benefits the Humane Society of Northwest Montana, the Flathead County Animal Shelter, the Spay and Neuter Task Force and Spay Montana. The golf tournament in the snow takes place on the church grounds at 2048 Conn Road.

There is room for 72 golfers in this Texas Scramble shotgun start with 36 teeing off at 10:30 a.m. and 36 teeing off at 12:45 p.m. Lunch will be served at noon. During lunch there will be a silent auction. Lunch is generously provided by Famous Dave’s, Loula’s and Tupelo Grille. A vegetarian chili will also be available. Coffee and pastries are also complimentary before and after the two rounds of golf.

A Friends of the Chili Open Event featuring wine, soft drinks, and appetizers takes place on the preceding Friday evening, March 8, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Pomerantz home, 342 Plantation Drive, north of Kalispell off of Whitefish Stage Road.

The Green Fees for golf on Saturday (which includes lunch and refreshments before and after the golfing) are $20. The Friday night Friends of the Chili Open has a suggested donation of $20. Golfers can also purchase holes-in-one for $50 to lower a foursome’s score. The proceeds from both events and the auction will be divided equally among the four animal groups. The entire production cost of the events has been underwritten by the restaurants providing the lunch, members of the community and All Saints’ Church.

Reservations can be made by emailing allsaintsmt@gmail.com or by calling (406) 291-3613. For information, visit www.allsaintsmt.org.

All Saints’ Episcopal Church is dedicated to striving for the day when no homeless pet goes unloved or lacks compassionate care which is the reason they energetically support these animal organizations.
