Austin Wade Foundation Chili Dinner
CARTERVILLE -- The Austin Wade Foundation hosted its fifth annual chili benefit dinner Saturday.
Supporters filed in the Christian Covenant Fellowship Hall in Carterville to take part in the event. The dinner raises money for the foundation, which helps support Southern Illinois families with children battling cancer.
Supporter Denise Lutchka says it was Austin Wade's mother who started the foundation, which has already helped several local families.
"So far, it's helped eight local familes who have struggled with a child having cancer," says Lutchka.
