Event Details

The Houston Bar Association Auxiliary’s mission is to assist the Houston Bar Association, the Houston Young Lawyers Association, and the State Bar of Texas, to promote a better understanding and relationship between the general public and the legal profession through community service projects and to encourage social relations among its members.

One of the main tenants of our organization is to raise funds to provide scholarships for local law students. Each year, our Charitable Fund strives to raise enough funds to award three (3) $5000.00 scholarships to one (1) student at each of the three (3) local Law Schools in Houston. (Houston College of Law, University of Houston, and Thurgood Marshall School of Law). Last year we were able to accomplish awarding these three scholarships by raising an additional $21,000.00 as a result of our fundraising events, including our Chili and Pie Cook Off. 

The 2018 Chili and Pie Cook Off was held February 10, 2018 with local law firms, legal departments, legal associations, and other groups involved in the legal community competing against each other for best chili and pie in the Houston Legal Community. 

There were about 250 people in attendance enjoying chili and pie, St. Arnold’s beer and sounds from a local live band. The entries are judged by actual federal, county, and municipal court area judges. Some of Houston’s most prominent legal minds turn out for this event. We were so delighted with the success and popularity of the Chili Cook that it has become an annual event.

This year we are holding the event once again at the Bayou City Event Center Pavilion near NRG Stadium on February 16th, 2019 from 5:00 ‐ 9:00 p.m. We are hoping to double last year’s attendance. We are expecting an even larger turnout due to the increased popularity and uniqueness of this event in the legal community. 

In addition to Best Chili, there will be awards for Best Pie, Best Decorated Booth and People’s Choice. All of the chili awards will be judged by sitting Judges. Didn’t win…don’t worry. There will be a silent auction to give you the opportunity to walk away with something. This is a fun filled event benefiting the HBAA Charitable Fund which has provided scholarships to students from the three local law schools for years.
