On October 24th, CEF Indian Lakes hosted their first chili cook off and silent auction! The event featured seven amazing to chili’s to try, donations from many local businesses and kids’ games, the night was a blast! Everyone was full of the chili and delicious home-baked cinnamon rolls done by the local CEF committee.
The kids loved playing fall themed games and winning prizes. There was a tie for the winner of the top chili, so a coin toss decided the winner. The winner got a wonderful gift basket filled with fall goodies. It was a wonderful night of fellowship. The event was to raise funds for the local CEF ministry. Thanks to everyone’s generous support, we were able to raise $2,500 for the chapter. Praise God!
We wanted to thank the wonderful business who made the silent auction possible! There were also many individuals who donated items to which we were very grateful for!
