MRH Elementary Heats Up for Annual Chili Cook-Off

chili cook offThe annual MRH Elementary Chili Cook-Off will be held February 23 in the Elementary cafeteria. This popular event, hosted by MRHE PTO, will include a silent auction, a cake/bake sale, raffles and of course the highly competitive Chili Cook-Off!

There is a $2 suggested donation at the door but “Guests can spend as much or as little as they can afford,” says Michelle Link, MRHE PTO President. “There will be free Roadhouse chili available while supplies last.”

The Chili Cook-Off is judged by the evening’s attendees. Event guests who sample the chili can pay 50¢ per vote to help their favorite chili win. “There will be token prizes for first, second, and third place in the cook-off.” Says Link. And of course there is the fame that comes with being declared a 2012 MRH Elementary Chili Cook-Off Winner!

Silent Auction items include fitness passes, books, sports memorabilia as well as other items and gift baskets. There will also be teacher-donated raffle prizes for the students.

This busy evening also features the Science Fair entry exhibits in the library and a Family Fitness Event with Dance Central on the big screen in the gym.

If you would like to enter your chili, donate an item or gift basket for the silent auction, make some baked goods or volunteer your time at this event, please download this flier and have your MRH student turn it in to the main office on or before February 22. 

If you have any questions or would like more information about the evening’s events please email the Maplewood Richmond Heights Elementary PTO at

Proceeds benefit Capstone Scholarship and Field Day.
