Chili benefit welcomes all cooks

Almost everyone has a favorite chili recipe. Now's the time to make it pay off. The annual chili cook-off benefit at Peaceful Grove United Methodist Church, Cottage Grove, gives awards to the top three winners. If you plan to compete, have your chili at the church by 5:15 p.m.

All are welcome to enter the competition or just stop by to eat and vote. Tasting begins at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 9, at the church, 8600 90th Street, Cottage Grove.

Tickets are $5 per person, with children, ages 6 and younger, eating free. Condiments will include sour cream, green onions, cornbread, crackers and cheese.

All proceeds from the event will go to Kay's Kids, an orphanage to be built in Tanzania by former Cottage Grove resident Kay Oursler.
