The Rex Baxter building at Amarillo’s Tri-State Fair Grounds was busy this afternoon for The Make A Wish chili cook-off. This was an opportunity for folks to not only enjoy chili but put money towards a cause that will change the lives of kids in the Panhandle.
The event has been a tradition for 30 years and continues to grow, but even through all the competition people never forgot what the benefit was for.
The cook off is one of Make A Wish’s major fundraisers. Last year, it brought in approximately $14,000 which is enough to grant two wishes and this year their hoping to get even more.
