A picture-perfect day welcomed hundreds of people to Island Bar & Grill in Pawleys Island for the 8th Annual Chili Cookoff, presented by Midway Professional Firefighters Association, IAFF Local 3617.
The event raises money to benefit a local child through Make-A-Wish South Carolina.
Judge's Choice Winner was Coastal Staffing Services, represented as "JiJi's Chili" at the event.
