Chili Cook-Off to benefit Nuçi’s Space

Digital Insight is hosting our 5th Annual Chili Cook-Off benefiting Athens' own Nuçi’s Space and is asking local businesses for their participation in making this event successful.

Let me start by telling you who we are. Digital Insight is a division of Intuit, the company responsible for Turbo Tax, Quicken, and QuickBooks. We are the industry leader for providing online banking services to community banks and credit unions like Johns Hopkins Federal Credit Union, Delta Federal Credit Union and our local First American Bank and Trust. While our company has over 8,000 employees and has locations all across the world, we have a local office atop the Bank of America Building in downtown Athens.

In past years Digital Insight has committed to raise money for Charity organizations including the American Cancer Society, Habitat for Humanity, the American Red Cross and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. This year we have decided to raise money for Nuçi’s Space, a non-profit health and music resource center here in Athens, GA.

To encourage participation in this event, we are asking local Athens businesses to enter a pot of chili in our People’s Choice Cook-Off. In addition, we are asking for any items that can be used as awards, such as gift certificates to your restaurant.
