BRYAN COUNTY, OK -- It was a beautiful day to be out on the Red River. For the second year in a row, the Riverview RV Park held a chili cook-off, bringing out visitors and nearby residents.

More than a dozen competitors were cooking up chili for people to sample on the river bank. The event is held to benefit Bryan County children and all the money raised goes to the Toys for Tots program, Charlene Grigg of the R.V. Park said.

The winner gets a trophy. Organizers say they raised $400 in admissions plus a few thousand dollars more in sponsorships. Unwrapped toys were also donated at the gate. They'll be working with the Durant Lions Club to get the toys out for the holidays.
