Chili Cook-Off and Mac & Cheese Challenge Raises Money for Local Church


A local church’s annual Chili Cook-off and Mac and Cheese Challenge had another successful event Sunday.

The event took place at the Sacred Heart-St. Patrick Center in Eau Claire. The Chili Cook-off and Mac and Cheese Challenge is more than a friendly competition, it’s also a fundraiser for the church’s youth program to help the students go on trips.

Organizers said the event raised about $700.

“I love volunteering because it helps me to get out and meet new people and do new things, ” said volunteer Joseph Mullenberg.

Organizers said nearly 200 people attended the challenge and they almost ran out of food!

The award for best chili went to Carrie Ronnlander and Anne Henricksen for best mac and cheese.
