This event has grown tremendously since it began 22 years ago and we now have folks from all over Tennessee joining us. I want to extend a personal invitation to all citizens in our senatorial district for a very special family-oriented event.

“I look forward to this event every year,” said Senator Yager, who started the Chili Supper during his service as Roane County Executive.  “This event has grown tremendously since it began 22 years ago and we now have folks from all over Tennessee joining us.  I want to extend a personal invitation to all citizens in our senatorial district for a very special family-oriented event.”

Senator Yager served as Roane County Executive for 24 years (1982-2006).  He was elected in 2008 to Senate District 12 which includes Roane, Rhea, Scott, Morgan, Campbell, Fentress and Pickett Counties.

Tickets for the event are $5 at the door.  Admission for preschool age children is free.  Celebrity servers for the event include Kingston Mayor Tim Neal, Sheriff Jack Stockton, District Attorney Russell Johnson, County Commissioners David Bell and Randy Ellis, WVLT TV personality Marco Villarreal. Members of the Tennessee State Senate are expected to attend as well.  There will also be a Silent Auction during the Chili Supper.  Proceeds from the auction will go to Roane County Habitat for Humanity.

“Habitat for Humanity provides an extremely valuable service to our community,” added Senator Yager.  “Many area families need housing but cannot afford it.  Hopefully we can help support their efforts with the proceeds from the auction.”

“Using the silent auction to raise money is a way for me to pay back to the community which has been so supportive,” said Senator Yager.  In addition to the Silent Auction, the net proceeds from the ticket sales are donated to charities throughout the district.

Past recipients include Michael Dunn Center, Hands of Mercy, United Way, Boys and Girls Club, CASA, and Imagination Library.
