The Faculty Association is holding a Chili Cook-Off fundraiser with proceeds going toward Faculty Association Scholarships. The cook-off is Wednesday, March 4, with chili sales starting at 11 a.m. It will be located just outside the Communications Lab on the first floor of the Main Building.

“This year, there have been talks to get more student groups involved,” says Michael Machiorlatti, Business and Economics professor, who also is tasked with organizing the event. Reference Librarians Tricia Sweany and Ann Raia are the event chairs. They are hoping for a big turnout this year.

In addition to the cook-off, there also will be a silent auction of donated items, with proceeds also going toward the Faculty Association scholarship fund. The auction will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
