LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - City employees put their best chili recipes to the test during the United Way Chili Cook-Off Sunday.
This is the fourth year for the competition that helps raise money for the United Way of Lafayette.
Participants were able to try the many different kinds of chili, and then voted for their favorite.
News 18's Dan Klein was also there, serving as a celebrity judge.
Other celebrity judges included West Lafayette Mayor John Dennis, Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski and Commissioner Tom Murtaugh.
Past United Way Campaign Chair and Lafayette City Clerk, Cindy Murray, said the cook off is a fun way to get people involved in the community.
“I think when people get together like this, they all feel like they are helping to do something, and you know nothing's better than that-than coming from your heart and actually giving back like that," Murray said.
The 4th Annual United Way Chili Cook-Off took place from noon until 2 p.m. Sunday at the McAllister Recreation Center in Lafayette.
