Local sorority holds chili cookout to benefit Make-a-Wish


CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) —  UTC’s Chi Omega chapter held a chili cookout at the Lookout’s stadium Sunday to support the Make-a-Wish foundation.

With all the toppings, people could purchase a bowl of chili knowing those funds would go towards making a child’s wish come true.
