Volunteers at the Meals on Wheels of Washington County prepare more than 300 meals a day at the Fayetteville Senior and Wellness Center.
“I see a lot of really sad situations for our seniors in Northwest Arkansas, some are bed ridden and they have no family in the area,” Wilson said. “So that hot meal delivered to them every day really makes a difference in their lives.”
There are cooked meals for seniors who visit the center and they also do home deliveries.
“We also give them a personal check to make sure they are OK,” Wilson said. “It’s not just the meal, it’s also that personal attention that we give our clients.”
Tickets for the chili cook off are $5. Kids 12 and under are free. Wine tasting is $10.
They’ll have a silent and live auction, which includes an autographed Peyton Manning Denver Broncos helmet.
