SOS chili event raises $1,500 for homeless families

By Cole Bertsos

The seventh annual Chili Challenge raised more than $1,500 this Sunday for families struggling with homelessness, according to a story on the Ypsilanti Courier.

The event was in Depot Town, in Ypsilanti, and was organized by SOS Community Services.

Participants were able to taste 12 chili samples from restaurants in the Depot Town area — including Aubree's, Sidetrack Bar and Grill and the Ypsilanti Food Co-op. Many of the restaurants included food and drink specials to go along with the chili tasting.

The restaurants all donated the chili and it was $5 to participate, reported the Courier.
