$10,000 raised at Sly's Chili Cook-off

March 17, 2011

What started as a simple idea six years ago, has grown into a major fund-raiser for a local charitable organization.
The Sixth Annual Chili Cook-off at Sylvester’s Bar and Lounge in Broken Bow is a testament to its value.
Each year, the business selects a local non-profit, charitable organization to raise money for. Head Start was chosen the first year, followed by the domestic violence prevention arm of Cedars, Central Plains Center for Services the third year, CNCS and their outreach program the fourth, Lions Club the fifth, and this year the Children’s Christmas Fund.

The four main focus areas are Technology, Budget and Staff, Curriculum and Facilities.
School facilities has been targeted as a major focus, and it is what was allotted the greatest amount of Monday’s discussion.
