Chili cookoff, jewelry exchange to raise money for CTIE

Just in time for the Super Bowl, enjoy a super bowl of chili during the annual SMU chili cookoff Thursday, Feb. 2, in the Common Room. No beans about it, the Volunteer Committee believes this is a great fundraiser!

Test your award-winning chili in the annual faculty/staff chili cookoff. The competition’s getting hot! Prizes will be awarded to the top three entries.

Please let Deb Nahrgang (Ext. 6966 or know if you plan to enter the contest, so we can be sure we have enough to go around! Then, just bring your “unmarked” crockpot to the Common Room by 11 to 11:15 a.m.

Everyone is invited to eat chili between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. You do not need to compete to enjoy!

Additionally, with the overwhelming success of a jewelry exchange a couple of years ago, the SMU community will have another opportunity to buy and recycle some bling this February.

Donate any good, usable jewelry, belts, purses and scarves to the Business Office by Monday, Feb. 6.

Then, come shopping for a good cause. The sale will be held at the first floor of Saint Mary’s Hall from 8 to 11 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 10.

Proceeds from both events will benefit CTIE in Nairobi. Donations are accepted.
