Annual Chili Rodeo raises money for Mission Outreach

GREENE COUNTY, AR (KAIT)- Teams from all over Region 8 came out to be a part of the annual Mission Outreach Chili Rodeo Saturday at the Greene County Fairgrounds.

All funds raised go towards Mission Outreach, an organization in Paragould focused on providing housing for the homeless and feeding the hungry.

Libby Glasco was on the committee for the rodeo event and said about 50 gallons of chili were made for the rodeo. Glasco said, "This is a way to get the community to come in, enjoy fellowship, have a good time, and get them involved in raising money for Mission Outreach."

Glasco said this year's event had even more chili booths than last year.
