ABOUT THE CHARITY
The 6th Annual Chili Cookoff is one that is especially important to all of us at Hotel San Jose and Jo’s Coffee. This year’s benefactor is our dear friend and former coworker Lila Tenenbown, who was diagnosed with breast cancer this year at age 32. Lila is one of those unique humans that leave a wonderful and lasting impression on all who meet her, and the circle of people she has touched runs through just about every vein of the City of Austin. Lila has dedicated her life to serving others – her work at the SIMS Foundation has helped to provide mental health and addiction recovery services for Austin-area musicians and their families, and Lila is the first person to offer a hand in helping others in need through her charitable work. All proceeds of the Chili Cookoff will benefit the Lila Tenenbown Recovery Fund. We Love Lila So Much.
