Chili and hoops a hot combo for good cause

Marion-Florence FFA chapter president Carley Stapleford is counting on chili lovers to come through in a big way Friday as she and other FFA members dish up meals at the Sports and Aquatics Center to raise money for firefighters.

Stapleford developed the idea for the fundraiser while attending a leadership conference in Washington, District of Columbia, last summer.

Beginning at 5:30 p.m., before the start of the girls varsity basketball game against Bennington, a bowl of chili, cinnamon roll, and drink will cost $5. Sales will continue through the evening or until food runs out.

Proceeds will be distributed to Marion and Florence fire departments.
