United Way 2022 Chilly Cook-Off Cancelled

After careful consideration and consultation with partners and sponsors,  United Way of Monroe County regrets to share that the 2022 Chilly  Cook-Off will not take place as initially planned. The  United Way team looks forward to hosting the event in 2023 when we can all hopefully resume large in-person events safely.

The  Chilly Cook-Off is intended to support United Way’s work in Monroe,  Owen, and Greene counties, and donations in lieu of attendance may be made at

United  Way recognizes these outstanding partners for their support of the 2022  Cook-Off: Activity Sponsors, Old National Bank and Ivy Tech Community  College Bloomington; Partnership Sponsor,  O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs Indiana University  Bloomington; and In-Kind Sponsor, Chocolate Moose.

The  Chilly Cook-Off was slated to be a part of the second annual  Freezefest, a community winter celebration. Freezefest will take place  January 20-22, 2022 featuring world-class ice carvers and a full lineup of winter activities. Visit for more information and a full schedule and map of festival activities.

“United  Way deeply appreciates all of the partners, volunteers, sponsors, and chefs, and the work that has been done toward this event,” shared United  Way Executive Director Efrat Feferman. “We look forward to enjoying the various outdoors Freezefest activities this year and hope the community takes advantage of the unique festival’s offering. We also look forward to returning to the Chilly  Cook-Off next year and building upon it in years to come.”
