Bethel held a chili cook-off to fund raise for the fair later this summer. There were 25 contestants in five categories. Event organizers say over 100 people tasted the chili and chose the winners. Bill Howell won the Best Overall Chili for his White, no tomatoes please chili.
Other winners include:
Wickedly Wild winner-Eric Hoffman
Vegetarian Virtuoso winner-Tiffany Tony
Holy Cow HOT winner-Dennis Shion
Ravishingly Regular winner-Eileen Henrickson


The chili event featured live music from Kevin Morgan and Jovi Sol. The fund raiser collected a little over $600 for the upcoming Bethel Fair August 23-25.

The Bethel fair will include categories like plants, strips, jams, jellies, art work, crafts, and youth contests. The next fair planning meeting will be June 12 at the Yupiit Piciryarait Cultural Center at noon.
