Event Information

Pittsburg’s first responders will renew their battle for the coveted Golden Chili Plaque at the annual Battle of the Badges Blood Drive. This annual struggle pits the finest and the bravest in head-to-head competition for bragging rights.

This two-day event takes place Tuesday, January 22, from 1:00 pm – 6:30 pm, and Wednesday, January 23, from 8:30 am – 2:00 pm, at the Frisco Event Center, 210 E. 4th St., in Pittsburg.

Pittsburg Police Department and the Pittsburg Fire Department are ready to compete for the best batch of chili and the generous donors at the blood drive will decide who has the tastiest recipe.

Who will be the 2019 champion?

According to the American Red Cross, just one donation of blood can potentially save up to three lives! Every two seconds, someone in the U.S. needs a blood donation. With your help, we can make a difference.

To schedule an appointment for the blood drive, visit and use sponsor code “66762.” Walk-ins are also welcome to attend.
