Detroit Police Capt. Ken Steil was killed in the line of duty in September, and proceeds from this year’s 10-Alarm Chili Challenge will help support his wife and children. The 10-Alarm Chili Challenge includes an all-you-can-eat chili eating contest, live music, and a cash bar. Plus, it’s at the zoo, so you’ll have plenty of ways to enjoy yourselves and keep the kids busy.
The event starts at noon; 8450 W. 10 Mile Rd., Royal Oak; detroitzoo.org. Admission to the zoo is $10, and tent admission is an additional $10.
