Quartzsite Chili Cook-off and Rock Auction photos
Saturday, March 5, 2011 was a delightful day in
The Quartzsite Chili Cook-off joined with
the 2nd Annual Rock Auction
for a unique new successful event for our community!
Quartzsite is the Rock Capital of the World! Local artists volunteered their time and talent painting Rock Slabs donated by Inland Lumber, Ace Hardware in Blythe, Calif. The 2nd Annual Rock Auction raised $2665 for local charities. Thank you Quartzsite for your generosity!
Quartzsite Quilters created this one-of-a-kind beauty! Raffle tickets will be sold throughout the year until the Arizona Centennial Finale in February, 2012. Tickets are only $1 or 6/$5! You've got to see it to believe it!Way to go ladies!
Local Senior Artists painted small rocks all year for the silent auction! Thank you everyone for your participation! We thought we had around 30, but ended up with 60! Many folks got to take home these treasures and raised funds for Proud Neighbors of Quartzsite!
Hundreds of folks lined up to taste the best chili in town! What a great turnout! Thanks Quartzsite
