Thursday, November 4th, 2021, was an amazing day at the Keller Williams Realty, Amelia Island offices. It was filled with Red & Blue flashing lights, shiny badges and – Chili?

This year’s annual Chili Cook-off to support local charities was a huge success, with 100% of this year’s $4,000 proceeds going to Nassau County 1st Responders to include the Nassau County Sheriff’s Department and Fire/Rescue, as well as City of Fernandina Beach Police Department and Fire & Rescue.

Many of our 1st responders were on hand to support this effort by meeting the public and displaying a host of emergency vehicles. Tickets were just $10, and a raffle was a part of the day’s activities.

This year’s event was the 9th year and funds will assist the area “Shop with Cops” programs and more.
