GALVESTON ISLAND, TEXAS - For over four decades, The Rotary Club of Galveston has hosted its annual Chili Supper fundraiser and this year's event is set for Wednesday, November 8th. To be held in the Ball High School Cafeteria, 4115 Avenue O, serving hours are 5pm-8pm. In addition to great “homemade” chili and rice and all the condiments, guests can purchase tamales to accompany their chili supper, as well as a variety of home-made and specialty desserts. Many of the delicious desserts available for sale will be made from the Rotarians’ family recipes - handed down from generation to generation, as well as tempting desserts donated by Galveston College’s culinary arts department, UTMB, and many of the Island’s best restaurants. Guests may dine in or bring containers for “to go” orders. “Take out” containers will also be available. For those patrons who choose to enjoy their chili supper with friends in the Ball High cafeteria - you're welcome to return for more chili as often as you like.

Free children’s books, again generously donated by Half-Price Books in Clear Lake, will be given away throughout the evening, with a great variety of books to interest all age groups of children and youth.

All proceeds from this annual fundraiser benefit the Rotary Club of Galveston’s Galveston Rotary Foundation, which in turn sponsors and supports many essential programs and projects that benefit the Galveston community. In just the past 15 months, the Galveston Rotary Foundation has donated over $ 37,500 to noteworthy local educational and humanitarian initiatives in Galveston. Additionally, the foundation awarded six scholarships totaling $7,000 to deserving Galveston students heading to college.

Tickets are $10 and include a complimentary dessert of one's choice. Tickets may be purchased in advance from any member of the Rotary Club of Galveston, or purchased at the door. For more information, contact Ulli Budelmann, Executive Secretary for the Rotary Club of Galveston, at 409.939.1224, or email to:
