Columbus Firemen’s Cheer Fund ready for chili fundraiser

The Columbus Fire Department is holding a chili fundraiser Friday night at the Fair Oaks Mall. Ben Noblitt with the department explains.

Cost is $5 for a bowl of chili, drink and desert. For $7, you get all that, as well as a Jimmy John’s sandwich. Noblitt says that $10 gets you an endless bowl of chili. Firefighters will also be raffling off some items for those in attendance.

You can line up for chili at the former JC Penny store in the mall starting at 5:30 p.m.

Money raised goes toward the Columbus Firemen’s Cheer Fund, which provides Christmas gifts for the needy children of the community.
