St. Mark’s Chili Supper & Bazaar

Serving Christ, Community & Chili since 1941

Thursday, November 8th, 2018

Lunch 11am to 2pm, Dinner 5pm to 8pm

Bazaar 10am to 8pm

The Heat is On! St. Mark’s has begun gearing up for the 77th Annual Chili Supper & Bazaar. Serving Christ, Community & Chili since 1941, has been an important mission of St. Mark’s.
An old family recipe, dating further back then the chili supper itself, has been the ingredient for success in contributing back to our neighbors in Southeast Texas.

The Chili Supper and Bazaar is one of the primary fundraisers of the ECW (Episcopal Church Women) of St. Mark’s. For over 75 years members have cooked and served chili to the Beaumont community. Attendees also enjoy extensive holiday shopping at the bazaar, have opportunities to bid on fabulous silent auction items, and can even get their chili To-Go!

New this year is the Chili Supper Beer Garden from 5:00 to 8:00 pm under the beautiful oaks on the grounds of St. Mark’s. Nothing goes better with “hot” chili than a “cold” beer! Grab your chili “To-Go” and step outside to enjoy your preferred “craft” and Beaumont’s favorite chili!

The funds raised from the Chili Supper and the Treasure House (our resale store) enable St. Mark’s to annually help twenty local community service organizations.

How Our Grants Are Used By Recipients

Some Other Place

“Not long ago, I was standing in line waiting to check out at a local store…a young woman approached me and asked me if I was the ‘Some Other Place lady’? She shared with me that SOP had provided her and her siblings with school clothing and special holiday assistance through the years. Her mom was a single mother and struggled to make ends meet. She thanked me for the help we had given her, her mom, and her brother through the years. She reported that she now had graduated from college and her brother was still in school. She works for a service agency in our community and thanked me for ALL that we had done for them. She gave us credit for helping them to get through difficult times but I shared with her that her success was solely as a result of a caring mother and her own determination. Sometimes, it is merely a pair of shoes, an I.D., a meal, a payment on a utility bill, the filling of a prescription, a listening ear that makes a difference in someone’s life. That is what we do here at SOP…We thank St. Mark’s and the ECW for helping us to “be here” for those who come for our help.”

– Paula O’Neal, Executive Director

Samaritan Counseling Center

“Samaritan has given me motivation to get out of bed each day.”

“We were at a loss before our counseling sessions. Taking in family, children and trying to cope was overwhelming. We have hope, finally.”

“My children were so angry about everything. They now have learned ways to manage their anger and are easier to handle.”

– Grateful Clients of Samaritan Counseling Center

Southeast Texas Food Bank

“One of the regular recipients of the senior food box as monthly supplemental nutrition is a
96 year old, who acts as caregiver for her 101 year old sister. Combined, they receive about $500 in monthly income, so both qualify as recipients of food under the financial threshold associated with the program. The caregiving sister drives to the distribution site each month to pick up two boxes of food for the siblings to share and always tells our staff that if it were not for this program and the nearby pantry that also provides them some food, they would not have enough food to make it through the month”

– Dan Maher, Executive Director
