The forecast for Saturday’s Ninth Annual Children-In-Need Chili Cook-off is warm and sunny — a departure some year’s parka-wearing temperatures.
But it still will be chilly enough to appreciate the taste of spicy and not-so-spicy chili created by some of the region’s most flavorful chili cooks. West Texas Centers and the Fraternal Order of Eagles Aerie 3188 will team up once again Saturday to raise money for West Texas Centers Children-In-Need fund.
Cooking begins at 8 a.m. with judging scheduled for 11:30 a.m. Tickets will be available at the door. Team entries are $10 and membership is limited to two people. Entry into the event is $5 and gives you the opportunity to test all the chili available for judging.
The cook-off will be at the Fraternal Order of Eagles Lodge, 703 W. Third St., in Big Spring.
