23rd Annual Chili Cookoff Raises $5,000.35 for Ready Set School

On a beautiful weekend, through sales and donations, a total of $5,000.35 was raised for Ready Set School at the 23rd Annual Chili Cookoff, sponsored by Winona National Bank on Saturday, February 11. A large crowd enjoyed 23 varieties of chili donated by local Winona businesses.

Ready Set School was created to ensure that all Winona County children have the basic and necessary school supplies to better succeed in school. Up to 35% of children in the county may come from families that lack the financial resources to provide supplies to their kids. Ready Set School is there to help those children.
