East Bernard Fair Fund, Inc. is a non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to supporting the youth of East Bernard and Lissie who participate in the Wharton County Youth Fair.
For 34 years, the volunteers and parents of the EBFF have worked to ensure the students who exhibit in the WCYF are rewarded for their hard work, dedication and efforts with their FFA and 4H club projects.
Since 1987 the East Bernard Fair Fund has been helping the youth of our community. The EBFF couldn’t do what we do without the support of our generous donors and countless volunteers! Our community has raised money to support thousands of local students and their projects.
Our annual chili cook-off fundraiser is held each spring, before the fair. The cook-off categories include chili, beans, cornbread, ribs, chicken, dessert chef’s choice, margarita, and dip. All cookers are welcome! The entry fee is $30/category except for margarita & dip - $10/entry or enter all nine for $195. Complete rules and entry forms can be downloaded on the Cook-Off page.
We have decided to split our funding raising into two events due to the fair moving up a month earlier in 2023! Our annual Chili cook-off competition will be held on September 10, 2022. A small live auction follows the cook-off, where results and prizes will be awarded.
We will hold a lunch, raffle, and live auction on Sunday February 19, 2023 for the second part of our fundraiser!
The Fair Fund meets the first Wednesday of each month in the East Bernard vocational ag building. If you have a student involved in 4H or FFA or just want to help the local kids of the our community, we invite you to become a member of the EB Fair Fund.
