MORROW Clayton State University students and staff will go from feeling chilly over the weather to eating chili in support of women next week.
The annual chili cook-off and quilt raffle fundraisers for the university’s Women’s Forum Scholarship Fund will take place in the school’s James M. Baker University Center on Nov. 15. The fund provides three scholarships to help female students and staff members attend college and undergo professional development programs, according to the university.
The chili cook-off will last from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m., or until the chili runs out. The chili is made by various groups and individuals at the university. The quilt, which is made by a Clayton State staff member, will be raffled off at 1:30 p.m.
Prizes are given to the person or group who makes the judge’s favorite chili, as well as the chili which is most popular among cook-off attendees.
The cook-off and raffle is also open to the public. It costs $5 to eat chili from the cook-off. Quilt raffle tickets are $1 per ticket, and $5 for a pack of six tickets.
An online auction will also run from Nov. 12 until Nov. 15, on the women’s Forum website, www.clayton.edu/womens-forum/. The auction items will be on display at the university center during the chili cook-off.
