OTTUMWA, IA (KYOU) – Things getting a little hot under the collar at O’Hara’s Hardware in Ottumwa.
The hardware store holding the Annual Muscular Dystrophy’s Association’s Chili Cook-Off this weekend.
Twelve competitors, including three fire departments, competing for the title of best chili. Kids and parents both have a lot of fun at this event. With all proceeds going to the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
“The money we raise goes directly to MDA that gives these kids to go to camp courageous. They get to experience life like any other kid gets to. They’re not set back, because they are in a wheelchair,” said Rodney long from the MDA.
Of the three fire departments competing. Not one of them got first place. It was Hy-Vee coming away with the title. The MDA however, and the kids they help, were the big winners. Because of all the donations collected.
