Greers Ferry Chamber of Commerce 29th Annual Chili Challenge was held Saturday night and it was great! There were approximately 350-375 people who came out for the annual event and had a great time eating chili, bidding on baked goods, trying their luck on door and raffle prizes and enjoying Tom Brannon as emcee. We had 17 cooks that were sponsored by local business and each had their “secret” recipe of chili. Along with the fabulous chili each cook went all out decorating their table trying the win the ribbon for that. Along with the great chili and decoration we had a baked good auction with some of the pies and cakes going for $180 each! Area businesses donated many nice gifts and cash prizes that were given out as door prizes and raffle prizes. We also took a few minutes to recognize our service men and women for the freedom that we enjoy. We were entertained by local singer, youth pastor, Paul McCarty. The Chili challenge has become Greers Ferry’s biggest social event that everyone looks forward to each year! I would like to say “Thank You” to all the cooks/sponsors, businesses, workers, etc. for making this another successful event and good time for Greers Ferry and the Chamber of Commerce.
