Goodyear's Annual Chili Cook-Off

It's an event that brings out the chili lovers.  Saturday afternoon, East Texans enjoyed chili-tasting and turkey shooting at Goodyear's annual chili cook-off.  Money raised from the event will go toward Goodyear's scholarship fund.  Last year, organizers say they gave away $1,000.00 in scholarships for students to attend college.  Organizers also say though the Tyler GoodYear plant is expected to close, the annual fundraiser will continue.

"The scholarship fund will go on if our plant closes, which it is expected to in December," said Event organizer Terri Johnson.  "Even though we're closing the funds still will go on."  The scholarships are given away in the spring to more than 50 students, to attend college in Texas.
