Firehouse Pub chili cookoff Nov. 23

Firefighters and police officers in St. Clair Shores are heating up the kitchen with a chili cookoff on Saturday, Nov. 23. 

You can join the festivities for just a $10 donation. The cookoff is at 23018 Greater Mack Ave. All proceeds go to Detroit Fire Dept. Firewives Julie Alef and Sue Francis, and to the family of Macomb County dispatcher Erika Ladas.
