Chili Helps Raise Money For the Community

Chili Helps Raise Money For the Community

Chili, Beans, Cornbread and Cobbler could all be sampled for just two dollars at the 10th Annual Falls Chili Cook-off. More than 20 local organizations and businesses brought their best tasting dish to the J.S Bridwell Ag Center. Michel Leach tasted Kiowa Casino's chili.

"It wasn't too hot, it's sweet, it's a very very good chili," Leach said.

All the proceeds raised go to the United Way and will stay right here in the community. The event lasted from 5:30 - 9:30 p.m. on Feb. 24.

"This event right here, it's very very good. I like it every time it comes," Leach said.

The dishes could win The Judged Awards and the People's Choice Awards. James Lane Air Conditioning and Plumbing won the first ever judges award for beans at the Falls Chili Cook-Off.

"We're really full, happy, we're excited," Laura Henderson.
