Veteran Chili Cook-Off
The Texarkana Area Veterans Council hosted its 19th annual Veterans Benefit Chili Cook-Off fundraiser on February 16th, 2018 at Texarkana College.
Admission to the cook-off was $6, which allowed each ticketed customer to taste all the available chili entries.
Proceeds went toward assisting local veterans and buying a transport van to take veterans to local and area medical care clinics and hospitals.
The council has two transport vans, and volunteer drivers are needed to take veterans to medical visits at the local veterans outpatient clinic, in the 900 block of Realtor Road in Texarkana, Ark.
All area chili cooks participating in the cook off competed for first, second and third-place trophies in three categories: business, civic group and individual. There was also a "People's Choice" award and a "Best Presentation" award. Winners will be chosen by the public.
Your local SERVPRO of Texarkana won first place in the business division.
