Beloved sale benefits programs of St. Ann Center

A hot time will be had by all at St. Ann Center’s Chili & Jewelry Sale on Saturday, Nov. 18. Local restaurants will donate their signature chilies for the tasteful event, running 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Stein Campus, 2801 E. Morgan Ave.

Shoppers will be bowled over by the scrumptious variety, ranging from chicken to veggie, extra-spicy to mild and classic to super creative. There’ll also be a home cooks table, with flavorful favorites made by friends of St. Ann Center. Chili will be sold in flights, so you can sample several varieties, or you can opt for a hearty bowlful of your favorite.

The day’s shining attraction will be a collection of hundreds of pieces of vintage, retro and heirloom jewelry—from rings, necklaces and bracelets to pins, earrings and watches. Costume jewelry is regularly donated by local churches, schools and individuals. Volunteers sort through it and clean, repair, card and price each fashionable piece.

There’ll be live music from 10 a.m. to noon. And free chair massages will help you unwind. Pet massages will be demonstrated by one of our therapists specially trained to work on canines.

Jewelry fans will also find one-of-a-kind creations designed and handcrafted by Sr. Edna Lonergan, St. Ann Center founder and president. Sr. Edna began designing jewelry years ago as a pastime and a way to supplement funding for the children, elderly and adults with disabilities served by the nonprofit center.

For more great buys, explore our spacious atrium where upwards of 20 vendors will offer local produce, natural soaps and lotions, handcrafted items, home decor and unique gifts.

All proceeds from the jewelry and chili sale go to support the care of children and adults of all ages and abilities at St. Ann Center. For a full list of available chilies, donating restaurants and participating vendors, visit our event listing at or
