THANK YOU SERTOMA & all others for a GREAT 2015 Chili Cook-Off !!!

The Springfield community’s SERTOMANS have once again pulled off a fabulous Chili Cook-Off event to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Springfield and other local children’s charities. We are grateful for the support and generosity of the excellent 2015 SPONSORS who have given so much in order to make this event a huge success! Hundreds of local university students, Club members and staff and other friendly and hard-working volunteers made the event flow smoothly. The two days were alive with fun-loving CROWDS, fabulous BOOTHS, great varieties of CHILI, and our talented and ROCKIN’ BANDS. All of these groups invested their time, resources and their vibrant energy to make this 34th annual event a huge success! The Springfield community supports this event whole-heartedly by turning out every year to be a part of the Cook-Off experience. Despite the snowy weather, early indications are that income will exceed last year’s totals. The Funds from this year's Chili Cook-Off will be used for funding support of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Springfield mental health program; YEO job training program; Campbell-McGregor Summer program; Teen Summer Nights program; new Sertoma Unit and 24 person shuttle; basketball program; baseball program; furniture for the new teen center; and more at a total of $121,000! If you are interested in learning more about the Boys & Girls Clubs of Springfield and the many ways we serve youth in our community, especially those at-risk, please give us a call at 417-862-9249. We’d love to give you a tour at one of our three locations!
