Good day for chili

GREENVILLE — Chili fans can warm themselves up over a bowl of their favorite meal today, while local law enforcement officers and firefighters continue their annual challenge of donating blood.

The Greenville Noon Rotary Club hosts the annual Chili Fest between 11 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. at the Landmark on Lee Street, 2920 Lee Street downtown.

The event will again include a silent auction with dozens of items donated by local merchants and individuals, along with the conclusion of the Battle of the Badges Blood Drive.

Individuals donating blood during the drive will be able to vote for their favorite public safety agency between the Greenville Police Department, Greenville Fire Department, and Hunt County Sheriff’s Department.

The agency with the most votes will be awarded a trophy. Everyone who donates blood will receive a free ticket to the Chili Fest and can also get two Dallas Stars mezzanine tickets for the price of one.

Each donor will also be entered to win other Dallas Stars experiences, including a chance to win luxury suite tickets — complete with food and beverages.

Donations will be accepted from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. today at the Greenville Police and Courts Building, 3000 Lee Street.

More information is available on the City of Greenville website at www.ci.greenville.tx.us/battle.

Proceeds from the Chili Fest will go toward funding local service projects undertaken by the Greenville Noon Rotary. Tickets are available from any member of the club or at the door.
