3rd Annual Chili Rodeo benefits Mission Outreach

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - There was plenty of food and fun at the Greene County Fairgrounds Saturday.

The 3rd Annual Chili Rodeo was cooking at the B.C. Lloyd Building, all to benefit Mission Outreach. Participants paid to enter and then there was a vote on who made the best chili.

There was also live music and line dancing. The money raised will go toward programs at Mission Outreach such as food boxes and utilities.

"The fundraiser is great, this chili rodeo gets awareness out in our community and surrounding areas about Mission Outreach, and what it does." says Jeremy Biggs with Mission Outreach.

Biggs also added that the goal was to raise over $8,000 for Mission Outreach of Northeast Arkansas.
