McKinney Chili Cook-Off Seeks Entries

Plan on seeking your pot of gold on March 17? Look no further than the McKinney School PTO Chili Cook-Off! This annual school fundraising event needs your help to make it a success. Cooks of all ages are invited to enter a pot of their chili, for a chance to win first place in one of three categories: student, adult, and the John Graham People’s Choice Award. Those planning to enter chili should submit a completed entry form (attached) with entry fee ($5 for student, $15 for adult) by the deadline of this Saturday, March 10.

Not a cook? Plan to come and eat! In addition to a variety of chilis, there will be bread, fruit salad, desserts, and beverages.

New this year is a Children’s Make Your Own Chili Station, where kids can assemble their own custom chili creation, or eat selected chili ingredients separately (i.e., meat, beans, red sauce, olives, cheese, chips).

There are also volunteer jobs still available, including donating desserts and helping that day.
