Editor’s Note: While Hoboken Volunteers consist of many fine volunteers that want to help the community and do so with no strings attached, the origin of this organization initially was to promote an inexperienced politician named 4th Ward Councilman Tim Occhipiniti. His handlers figured this would be a way to get his name out there. His recent voting record also speaks for itself.

With that said TheBoken.com in no way discourages people from participating in events like these since they are fun and probably raise charitable dollars that would otherwise not be raised just like Party with Purpose. TheBoken.com recommends that if you can’t make events like these that you give directly to Hoboken charities directly. Some worthy charities that serve Hoboken residents include: Jubilee Center, Hoboken Volunteer Ambulance, Hoboken Shelter, Boys and Girls Club, YMCA, True Mentors, and many others as well. This will ensure that the money you give goes directly should you not have a penchant for partying. If I left any charities off please feel free to add in the comments below.

No doubt Hoboken Volunteers adds value to the community, in terms of awareness and fundraising but people should understand its origins and know that while it is fun to party with purpose, when you give direct it is the most efficient way to see your charity dollar put to use.

With that said, TheBoken.com likes Belgian Beer and this event looks very good for the beer lover.

Here is a heavily promoted event that promises to be a gas and for a good cause as well …

Hoboken Volunteers Chilli Cookoff 2-25-2012

Hoboken Volunteers’ 3rd Annual Chili Cook-Off

For a Cause and Homebrewing Competition

Things are about to get hot and spicy this winter as Hoboken Volunteers stirs up the pot for some delicious competition. To support Hoboken charity HOPES and Community Action Partnership, Inc. and their adult services, Hoboken Volunteers, with Zog Sports as their headline sponsor, is hosting its 3rd Annual Chili Cook-Off & Homebrewing Contest on February 25th from 2pm-6pm at the Elks Lodge in Hoboken, NJ.

HOPES CAP, Inc., according to their mission statement, was created to provide community services that respond to the social, educational and training needs of its residents in an effort to overcome barriers and fight the causes of poverty.  This event will raise money for the organization and their adult services.

“Through this program,” said Marisa Musachio, director of the program operations at HOPES (Hoboken Organization against Povery and Economic Stress) CAP, Inc. said, “low income clients will achieve personal, professional, and educational self-sufficiency goals.  The programs include teaching computer literacy, financial education, and a class on life skills.”

Along with a day of community bonding, fundraising and experiencing some of the best chili and beer in Hoboken, of course, prizes for Best Judged and Fan Favorite for both chili and home-brewer competitions will be awarded.  Over $2,200 in prizes and gift certificates from local businesses will be awarded to the winners. This year’s judges include Peter Genovese, the Star Ledger reporter known for the famous Munchmobile, Anthony Pino, the owner of Bin14 and Anthony David’s and Ginger Zee from Good Morning America.

Last year, the event raised approximately $3,500 for the Eric LeGrand Believe Fund, which contributed to the medical bills of a Rutgers football player who was paralyzed during a game in 2010.

This year’s event is bringing the heat more than ever with over 25 chili contestants and more than 15 different home brewed beers!  Tickets are $25 per person and include chili and beer samplings.  For more information on the event or the organization, please visit www.hobokenvolunteers.com.
