"The Live 4 Tay Foundation and Mayday Brewery hosted the third annual ‘Live 4 Tay Chili Cook Off’ featuring eight contestants with chili ranging from meat chili, to turkey chili to white chili and even green chili.

More than 75 chili connoisseurs raised in excess of $500 for this wonderful organization!


The Live 4 Tay Foundation was created to help the Filorimo family with the medical expenses for their daughter Taylor who had just been diagnosed with an exceedingly rare form of kidney cancer, renal cell carcinoma (RCC). ‘Tay’ passed on at the age of 16 in 2012.

Tay was renowned for her optimistic attitude, regardless of the odds. Tay's philosophy on her diagnosis: "I will NOT let the FEAR of cancer STRIKE me out."

The Live 4 Tay Foundation supports families who have a child with cancer by providing financial assistance generated through fundraising events held to raise awareness for childhood cancer."
