PTO raises funds with chili cook-off


Baldwin High School’s Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) hopes to bestow on teachers necessary classroom supplies this year through its first-ever chili cook-off fundraiser.

Before the school’s open house scheduled Monday, Jan. 27, PTO will give the community the chance to taste various styles of homemade chili for $1 per tasting.

“We’re asking teachers, students, parents and the community to enter the cook-off,” said Pam Tindal, treasurer of the school PTO.

There is no entry fee to participate in the chili cook-off. Individuals interested in the competition must call Tindal by Friday, Jan. 24.

“We just ask people to bring their chili in a Crock-Pot or a pot, but we prefer a Crock-Pot so we can keep it warm,” Tindal said.

All chili tasters will vote for their favorite in the mild and spicy categories. Winners will receive prizes.

“This is to help raise money for teachers with whatever they need during the school year, like classroom supplies,” Tindal said.

All chili entrants must arrive by 5:15 p.m. on the day of the open house. Chili tasting is slated from 5:30 to 6 p.m., followed by a brief PTO meeting and open house.

“We really need community involvement in our school,” Tindal said. “A community that is involved and supports our schools ... is a community that thrives. Come volunteer and be a part of that.”

For more information about the chili cook-off or to participate call Tindal at 478-453-6429 ext. 352, or email
