2014

Chili Cook-Off For Education

 

Saturday - November 1, 2014

11 am. - 2 pm

Located at “The Shed” beside

Smoky Mountain Harley Davidson

1820 W Lamar Alexander Parkway, Maryville, TN 37801

 

Each year the Maryville-Alcoa Rotary Club provides dictionaries for every third grade child in Blount County. We deliver the dictionaries to the schools and provide a short introduction in the use of the dictionaries. It's a tremendous amount of fun to share some time with enthusiastic third-graders. To raise funds for this project, we hold our annual Chili Cookoff for Education. If you would like to help with the cookoff, follow the link below for more information.

The Maryville-Alcoa Rotary Club held its annual Auction on March 28 at the Knoxville Airport Hilton.

 

In addition to projects for water purification at schools in Mexico and child and youth kidney transplants in Mexico, the proceeds will fund local youth projects. These include

  • dictionaries to all third graders in Blount County,
  • college scholarships to high school seniors, and
  • the food for kids program (back pack program through Second Harvest Food Bank) at two local schools.

122 attended including 27 Rotarians. Gross income was $!8,775 The net was $13,340.98 (updated 4/20) which is more than 2013’s $11,837. However, we did not have the Chili Cookoff this year so in total funds for next year we are down. All in all, great work on the auction. Thanks to all sponsors and participants!!
