A record number of tickets was sold for this year’s chili supper at Perritt Primary School, raising some $12,000 for the school’s Parent-Teacher-Child (PTC) organization. That group in turn will give that money to meet the needs of the school and its students.
In addition to the 1,100 meals and 200 cinnamon roll orders volunteers doled out during the busy event Thursday evening, a silent auction of individual student artworks raised even more funds.
One piece, a campus-wide collaborative work titled “Sticky Fingers” that included the thumbprints of each Perritt student, sold for a whopping $3,000.
Having started in 1984, Perritt’s annual chili supper is a longstanding tradition in Arkadelphia Public Schools.
“Everyone came together to benefit Perritt as they do every year,” said PTC president Christa Neal.
