By SPENCER DAVIDSON

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - The West Side Senior Center held its annual Celebrity Chili Cook-off, Saturday.

People from all over the area came to the center on Court Street in order to sample the various chili recipes made at the event.

The West Side Senior Center has experienced heavy financial burdens recently, and is hoping that this event will help to relieve some of the pressure.

According to officials, the Center is still waiting for the city to release grant money that was supposed to be released in April, yet another setback that has the building in a bind.

There has been no official word yet about how much money was raised from the Cook-off today, but people are optimistic that enough would be raised to help.
