Chili Fundraiser February 7

Bowl of ChiliWhy not enjoy a great bowl of beans while supporting a very special educational program?

Wednesday February 7, from 5–8 p.m., the PTO of Mt. Royal Elementary/Middle School hosts their third annual Northbay Chili Fundraiser in the school’s cafeteria. All funds collected help subsidize the spring field trip to Northbay Adventure camp for the 6th grade class. 

About 100 students have signed up to attend this week-long outdoor educational program focusing on environmental science and character education. This will be the school’s 12th year participating in the program. 

All field trips have costs, particularly a week-long one. In prior years, Mt. Royal school had the budget to pay for transportation and part of the tuition cost, with parents contributing substantially to the $225 per student that covers lodging, meals, activities, and materials for the week.

Due to continuing budget challenges, the PTO is seeking community support to assist in funding this valuable educational opportunity. So, come for the food and stay to learn more about the experience that Northbay has provided students. Details below:

  • When: Wednesday, February 7, 5–8 p.m., Mt. Royal school cafeteria
  • Cost: $10 (kids under 12 eat free); $1 drinks and baked goods, and $1 raffle tickets to win prizes from local merchants and restaurants.
  • Tickets: Buy online or in person at the school during school drop-off, 7:45–8 a.m.
  • Questions? Contact PTO President, Kimberly Canale at mtroyalpto@gmail.com.

If you can’t attend, but would still like to support the students, make a donation online.

You can also sign up to volunteer at their Sign-up Genie site. Any way you get involved with this event will help make a difference for Mt. Royal students.
