A chili contest and helping others is about as Nebraska as it can get. On Thursday, February 25, Mr. Rudy’s Restaurant and Drinkery in Sargent, will host a chili contest where entries will have a chance to win 1 of 3 great prizes plus bragging rights! A $5 cover charge is all that it will cost for you to taste and vote for your favorite chili which will also include a fresh-baked cinnamon roll. The tasting and voting will begin at 5 PM and the top three winners will be announced at 8 PM.
The cover charge along with the donations given during the event will go to help Makilah Ironshell and Mitchell Porter who lost everything in a February 17 fire including two pets, Boston and Lexi.
A GoFundMe has also been set up where anyone can donate if you are unable to attend the event: https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-makilah-and-mitchell-get-back-on-their-feet?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_campaign=p_cf%20share-flow-1&fbclid=IwAR1Ia5FDs2RHAvm4sYAluR-T9kkD2QKu-m1UtZuMybPfh9W425nTdBqp410
