This past Sunday, Racine: First UMC held its annual chili cook-off and fundraiser. Jeanne Whiteside, church media coordinator, said, “This is a fun tradition that helps to raise money for our youth group and projects. This year we raised over $200, had wonderful fellowship time, and crowned a new Chili Queen with a vegetarian chili that was an overwhelming success. We are so thankful to be able to involve so many members of our church and raise money for a great program.”
