Chili Out! Annual Chili Cook Off for Richmond Senior Citizens Center


Today at Central Bank on Main Street in Richmond, the Annual Valentine’s Chili Cook off to benefit the Richmond Senior Center took place. While WBON-TV was there, over 60 people showed up to get a bowl of chili to help fund the Senior Center, which not only provides activities for senior citizens but delivers meals and offers support to those that are home-bound.

Director Heather Sloan explained that this was not only an opportunity to get some great homemade chili from volunteers, but also to participate in the yearly silent auction and purse auction, which she explained grows with each year. Sloan also said that anyone that missed this yearly event (arguably their biggest fund-raiser of the year) can contact the Senior Citizens Center to volunteer or donate, as they are always in need of funds.
