Tons of Fun at the PALS Chili Cook-Off & Bingo Night

What a competition!

After a few years absence, the PALS Chili Cook-Off made its triumphant return this weekend. Families and staff joined together to sample a wide variety of chilis and win some fabulous prizes during games of Bingo. Thank you to everyone who made the night come together: the students calling the bingo game, all of our contestant chefs, and especially the three PALS Chili Co-chairs Emily Strulson, Michael Bright, and Melanie Barton.
