MUNISING — While Mother Nature takes her sweet time transitioning to more spring like weather, Alger County residents were able to warm up with homemade chili at the animal shelter’s biggest fundraiser of the year.
The Waggin Tails Chili Fest was held at the Munising American Legion Sunday afternoon. The event featured twenty five gallons of chili, live music, a fifty, fifty drawing, and a silent auction. All of the money raised at the event goes directly to the Alger County Animal Shelter.
“We hope to sell as much as we can to raise as much money for the shelter,” said event coordinator Carole Murk. “Which goes for the care of the animals in the building and for the vet bills which of course are very high. We would like to have people come down to our shelter and see our animals ready for adoption. We’re low right now, which is a good thing. We have one dog in our shelter and seven cats, which is extremely low.”
