Benefit Chili Supper Means Great Food, Chance At Prizes


Payson and Rim Country chili lovers have to make an appearance at the 14th Annual Chili Supper on Tuesday, Nov. 9.

Presented by PAWS (Payson Area Woofers Society) at the Payson Elks Lodge on Airport Road from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., adults eat for just $7 and children under 12 can enjoy dinner for just $4.

The menu includes tasty chili, macaroni and cheese, salad, rolls and homemade cupcakes. Tickets are available at the Humane Society shelter, 812 S. McLane Road; the Humane Society Thrift Store, 404 W. Main St.; the Payson Public Library; the Rim Country Regional Chamber of Commerce office, and at the door.

Along with the great eats, you can take a chance or two on the 50/50 or U-Pic raffles, or stop at the Humane Society raffle table where you can purchase raffle tickets for the Cardinals football basket with admission to the Arizona team’s Dec. 5 game with the St. Louis Rams. The Cardinals basket includes four tickets located in Section 403, plus parking, NFL Cardinals team logo items and much more, donated by Jim and Sue Lewin of Lewin and Associates, LLC. Buy a chance for only $25 per ticket.

Among the other prizes and raffle items are trips to area sites, unique gift baskets, jewelry and more. The tickets on the raffle items vary in price depending on the value of the prize. Winners don’t need to be present.

There will also be a beautiful boutique set up for guests to browse and purchase items donated by generous local businesses and individuals in the Payson and Rim Country area.

Much of the food for the chili supper has also been donated. Macky’s Grill is providing the chili; El Rancho is donating the cheese; Fargo’s Steakhouse is contributing the salad dressing; Tiny’s Restaurant is giving PAWS the lettuce; Gerardo’s Italian Bistro is providing the rolls; and volunteers are baking tons of cupcakes.

Blue Frog, a five-piece blues band, will be providing music for the evening.

All proceeds will go to benefit the homeless animals of Rim Country through the Humane Society of Central Arizona.
