Are you looking for a way to get more involved with the Texas Exes or in the New York community?

We would love to have you at our next volunteering event. Volunteering with the Texas Exes New York Chapter typically takes two forms:

  • Volunteering at Chapter Events (Gamewatches, Texas Independence Day, Chili Cook-off, Seminar, etc)
  • Volunteering in the Greater NYC Community (Father's Heart Ministries, KEEN, etc)

Our goals in volunteering are to support broader chapter initiatives and events, to have a lasting impact on the NYC community, and to help build a sense of community among local Longhorn alums. If you're interested in volunteering with us, please email


Chili Cook-Off  Volunteering

A limited number of specially priced tickets will be available for anyone who is able to volunteer with the TexasExes New York City chapter for chili cook-off. We need assistance with setup, VIP lounge service, ticketing merchandise, and other operations for event day. 

Our goals:

  • Set-up: 2 hour shift prior to the start time. You will still have full access to the entire event (1-6pm) once the shift is completed. Tickets will be $35. 

  • Event Volunteering: 1.5 hour shift is required between the hours of 12-5pm. The majority of assistance is needed within the VIP lounge for food and beverage service and collecting and tabulating results from Judges and VIP patrons. The time period between 12-2pm is where most volunteering is needed. Tickets will be $25. 

To be eligible for volunteering-priced tickets, please contact our volunteer organizers at and schedule a time slot of availability. Once a commitment is finalized, you will receive a link to purchase your discounted tickets.
