TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A bowl of chili could easily warm you up on a cold day.

That was no different for Saturday's Altrusa Chili Cook-Off.

It's the 35th anniversary for the event.

Many put their taste buds to the test for a good cause. It all helps raise money for literacy in the Wabash Valley. 

"It's really important that we help support those programs for children in the community and help provide reading programs and books and different assistance," said Ashley Jones, participant.

The first prize goes to the cook behind the best chili along with raising the most money for the cause.
