The secret ingredients at Saturday morning's Eagles Lodge benefit chili cook-off weren't so much meat and spices as they were having fun and helping others.

More than 30 teams entered this year's cook-off, which raises funds for West Texas Center's Children-In-Need Fund, and while while they were all vying for awards, competition wasn't the main force driving their efforts.

“We're here because this is a good cause and we want to help out,” said Vince Solis, who teamed up with fellow KBYG radio personality Barney Dodd for the event.

“We were going to be out here anyway, so we thought, 'What the heck, we might as well participate,” and I kind of fancy myself a cook,” Dodd added.
