Laramie County Fire Chiefs to Host Chili Cook-Off, Open House
The chili cook-off, which is now in its second year, is a fundraiser for the Muscular Dystrophy Association and will feature numerous teams vying for the title of best chili.
"The end goal is $40,000," said spokesman Derek Pollnow. "We're hopeful to hit that goal, but if not we're incredibly thrilled with the number that we're going to be able to provide to the MDA."
The open house will take place at the same time and will feature free activities for the entire family, including fire truck displays, a junior firefighter obstacle course, fire extinguisher training, demonstrations and a bouncy house. Even Smokey Bear, who celebrated his 75th birthday on Aug. 9, will be there.
