RIDGELAND, MS (WLBT) - A hot bowl of chili can do more than fill you up and warm the soul and Sunday it benefited children with speech disorders.

Pelican Cove on the Reservoir hosted the Pro-Bowl Chili Cook Off to support the Magnolia Speech School.

Contestants served up their special recipes in competition for the titles of "People's Choice" and "Best Overall Chili."

The fundraiser assists the school's four programs.

"Every student at Magnolia Speech School is scholarship. So no one pays full tuition. So we try to get all the children who need the help the most, and so we're so dependent on the community for this sort of event for other donations to help us get where we need to be for the children," said Magnolia Speech School Executive Director Valerie Linn.

 This is the fifth year the cook off has been held.
