Each November on a Sunday just before Thanksgiving, Club 25 sponsors this special Chili feed for members, their families and lots of assorted guests at St. Thomas More Parish Hall after a Sunday evening Mass. All supporters of vocations in the area are invited and other Kansas City Serra Clubs join in the fun. We seek sponsors prior to the event by selling tickets and seeking contributions beyond the cost of the meal. Many businesses who support Serra’s goals contribute in kind to the event. The excellent Chili is carefully prepared by master Chili chefs who are volunteer members of the Club. All net proceeds of the Dinner support the Seminarian Lake Retreat the following summer.”
