About Sertoma Chili Cookoff:
Helping the Boys & Girls Clubs of Springfield Since 1941.
The Sertoma Clubs are non-profit organizations that focus on raising money for charity, primarily sponsoring children charities in the Springfield and surrounding community. The organization is a member of Sertoma Inc. The organization has made great strides in giving back to the community through various activities and has raised and donated hundreds of thousands of dollars. Each club has a set of officers and a board of directors to oversee and guide the club’s activities and pursuits. The word Sertoma is an acronym for “SERvice TO MAnkind,” and the Sertoma Clubs exist for the “high and noble purpose of benefiting mankind at large.”
The Springfield area Sertoma Clubs focus on the needs of at risk youth in Southwest Missouri. Throughout our eight clubs we give on average over $300,000 per year to these causes. For more information on Sertoma, please contact Sertoma at (417) 886-8606.
