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


The Richmond Senior Citizen Center held their annual Valentine’s Chili Luncheon today at the Central Bank in Richmond.

Director Heather Sloan explained that the main goal of the fundraiser is to benefit the Richmond Senior Citizen Center.

The event includes auction from purses, and other items. Aside from the auction, volunteers provide food such as chili, spaghetti, and various dessert.

Although the annual event is hosted at central bank every year, they are hoping that someday the Senior Citizen Center will be big enough for an event like this.

More than 200 people usually come to participate at the fundraiser. The successful event raised over $25,000 last year and their most successful fundraiser over time totaled to $35,000.

Every year there’s been a decrease in funds for senior services and anyone looking to donate or volunteer are always welcome.

You can find them on Kentucky River Foothill’s facebook or come directly to 1215 West Main St anytime from Mon-Fri between 8.30 AM- 2 PM.
