Chili Cookoff Benefits Local Charity

Tyler was the hot spot for people who like chili.  A group of East Texans held the 2nd Annual Chili Cookoff Saturday in Tyler, benefiting the "Hospice of East Texas".

More than 10 teams entered this years event with trophies going to those cooking up the best pots of chili.  The "Hospice of East Texas" is a non-profit center, that helps care for terminally ill patients.

Last year the group raised $20,000 dollars for the charity.

If you missed out on today's chili cook-off you can still help out.  To make a donation for the hospice center just call 903-539-9151.
