Cooking chili for wishes

Amarillo, TX - The Tri-State Chili Championship is celebrating its 32nd year of making wishes come true and satisfying plenty of taste buds in the process. 

Nearly 3,000 people came out to the Tri-State Fairgrounds Saturday afternoon for the competition.

About 100 teams served up their special chili recipes in hopes of becoming the chili-making champion.

All proceeds from the cook-off benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of North Texas, which grants wishes to children who are battling life-threatening medical conditions across the Panhandle. Over the past decade, this competition has raised $700,000. This has helped the organization grant 200 wishes to area children.
