Harper Chapel United Methodist Church is holding its 3rd Annual Chili Cook-Off & Dessert Auction Friday. The event will start at 6:30 p.m.
HyVee, Wobbly Boots, Wise Guys and Osage Beach Fire and Police Departments will be entering their chili for the cook-off Feb. 8 as well as members of Harper Chapel.
Everyone who purchases a ticket will taste the chili entries and then vote for their favorite. Prizes will be awarded to the top three winners.
Several local businesses have donated gift cards to be used as prizes.
An area will be set up for kids to play games and eat Mac & Cheese and hot dogs. There will also be drawings for door prizes. And to top things off, there will be a dessert auction with the dessert bringing the top bid also receiving a prize.
The proceeds of this fundraiser will benefit the Harper Chapel General Fund with 10 percent to be donated to the Osage Beach Firefighter's Benevolent Association (benefiting local firefighters in need and providing scholarships to high school seniors who choose a career in the emergency services field).
Tickets are $7 per person. There are no entry fees. For more information, contact the Church office at 573-348-2617.
