Jen Gerard of Whitening Lightning is this year’s title sponsor of Santa Clarita’s 3rd Annual Chili Cook-off to be held at the Hyatt Valencia. The event will be held at 5:30 pm on Friday, March 20, 2015.  The price to get in is $10 per person.

“You get to taste 40 chilis and desert while enjoying entertainment,” Co-Chair Nicole Stinson said. “It’s a good value for your buck.”

“Right after the holidays, everyone hunkers down and tightens their belts,” adds Co-chair Marcy James. “Charities take the biggest hit and that’s why we host the event in March, to bring support to the local charities.”

This year’s title sponsor, Jen Gerard, is the CEO and founder of Whitening Lightning and Gerard Cosmetics, manufacturer and distributor of home teeth whitening products and beauty products. Gerard’s success began in 2010 when Whitening Lightning earned international acclaim, followed three years later by sister company Gerard Cosmetics. Hollywood celebrities and beauty experts went wild over the products and built it to be one of the world’s most sought after brands.
