Aero-Tech Hosts Chili Cook-Off To Benefit Wichita Children’s Home
ATEI held their 7th Annual Chili Cook-Off the week of November 5, 2018, and had a great turnout! With 16 participants and a total of 60 people donating funds to the cause, we were able to raise $380 from the event. Aero-Tech corporate matches those proceeds dollar-for-dollar, making that donation $760 for the Wichita Children’s Home. Even better, this year Aero-Tech will take the generous donation amount to the next level, and raise the total dollars donated to $1,000 in total contributions. Our 7th Annual Chili Cook-off winners this year are 1st Place: Aaron Johnson & 2nd Place: Denise Blake. Thank you to our employees who participated in this year’s fundraising event for the Wichita Children’s Home.
