Chili cook-off for a good cause

On a cold day, more than one hundred people came together for the fourth annual chili cook–off.

Agents from both Home and Woods Bros Real Estate put together their own recipes and competed for the title of having the best chili.

It's a fundraiser where all the money raised goes to the local American Cancer Society.

"We've had a lot of cancer within our organization and it's just affected so many families, so many agents, that we wanted to do something and this was our way of participating and trying to help find a cure," HomeServices of Nebraska CEO, Gene Brake said.

Three celebrity judges including Channel 8's Rod Fowler scored each of the soups.  The winner went home with a trophy and joins winners from the past years on a plaque.

Event organizers say the cook–off has grown every year.  Last year they raised nearly 3,000 dollars, and donated half to support an agent's transplant fund.

It's something they say they'll continue to do in the future to help find a cure.

"The fellowship is great, the charity is great and the chili is fabulous."

The winner this year is Karalyn Hoefer with her southwest chicken soup.

A little more than 2,000 dollars was raised at Wednesday's event for the American Cancer Society.
