LOWELLVILLE, Ohio (WKBN) – Saturday was the 35th annual Chili Open Golf Classic at Bedford Trails Golf Course in Lowellville.
There was golfing, putting contest, a chili-eating contest and more.
The money raised at the event will be going to 23 local nonprofits.
This year, the Poland Rotary added a new feature — the Chili Plunge. Participants jumped into a pond at the golf course.
Co-Chair of the Poland Rotary, Mary Ann Carano, said this event is a way to get people together during the winter season.
“Getting out of the house and golfing. There’s no football. There’s nothing really going on, and it’s sort of a way to alleviate the Cabin Fever people have during the winter month,” said Carano.
