The Kiwanis Club hosted their 58th Annual Chili Day Saturday afternoon.

Nearly 4,000 people were in attendance for the annual fundraiser at the Abilene Civic Center. Tickets were seven dollars each which paid for all-you-can-eat chili.

According to organizers, two-thousand pounds of chili meat and 80 peach cobblers were cooked. A silent auction was also part of the event where all the proceeds will go to any children organization in Abilene.

The club is expecting to raise anywhere between $20-$30K.
