It was a great way to stay warm on a very cold day. The American Red Cross Chili cookoff was a tasty success. Saturday's event raised 9,200 dollars.
Around 800 people attended the cookoff to try over 40 types of chili, including News 5's Chicago Fire chili. Red Cross officials say they are happy with the turnout, considering the frigid temperatures and the horse races being canceled.
