Over $1,500 raised for United Way at Greenville chili cook-off

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — The city of Greenville held its annual chili cook-off Wednesday.

Twelve teams, including those from local restaurants and fire stations, put on their chef’s hats and put out their best recipe for chili.

The cook-off raised more than $1,500, all to benefit the United Way of Pitt County.

“We get involved here, and we have this chili cook-off so that we can give back to them as we give back to the community on a daily basis,” said Steven Thompson with Greenville Fire/Rescue.

Crossbones Tavern won the restaurant division and Shift 3, Stations 2 won the open division.
