TV and Movie Actor Adam Boyer  has also appeared in the television series The Game, One Tree Hill, Necessary Roughness, Homeland, Revolution, Resurrection, Nashville, Sleepy Hollow, Powers, Ozark and of course… The Walking Dead! But he is probably most intimately known for his portrayal of Sargent First Class Leon Wisniewski or “Ski” on the Lifetime hit series Army Wives. Most recently he wrapped a new show with Jason Bateman called Ozark. Look for it to come out on Netflix Spring of 2017.


We love our volunteers. If you’re interested in volunteering call or drop a note to Willie (contact info below).

Heartfelt thanks to Maranza Robinson for sponsoring the drink tent this year.

Chili Cook Off Background

In 2010 Mr. Willie Springz decided to gather a few of his good cooking friends for a Chili Cooking competition. As it turned out the chili was so good that people paid just to have a taste of it. Mr. Springz (being the benevolent guy he is) decided to donate the money to his favorite charities in Roswell, GA. To date Williez Chili Cook Off has raised tens of thousands of dollars for charity and served about 5,000 cups of the finest chili you’ve ever tasted.
