Mission Outreach puts on 6th Annual Chili Rodeo

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT)- Mission Outreach had their 6th Annual Chili Rodeo Saturday at the Greene County Fairgrounds.

Nineteen teams competed for the title of having the best chili in Greene County. All funds raised at the event will go to the Mission Outreach benevolent fund. Graham Pickney is the event chair and said the chili rodeo is one of their biggest fund raisers of the year.

"Every penny that goes into the pot, everything that goes into the tip jar, every penny is going to go to the benevolence of Mission Outreach so you're really helping a lot of people with this event," he said.

Graham said this year they had more teams sign up and participate.
