The 2012 ChiliFest, produced by the Greater Bothell Chamber of Commerce, announced Wednesday that the event raised more than $479 and 230 pounds of food for Hopelink.

The non-profit organization said that the donations will provide 408 total meals for families in need.

The sixth annual ChiliFest was a contest in which hundreds of area residents flowed through Evergreen Washelli in downtown Bothell to taste chili brewed by 15 local businesses.
