Chili Cook-off & Silent Auction

chili cook off3rd Annual Chili Cook-off & Silent Auction

Friday, October 21st

This fun and casual event is Manning’s biggest fundraiser. It is held in the cafeteria and is a perfect opportunity to bid on our silent auction items, meet other Manning families, and of course – sample some of the best chili recipes around!

Tickets are $10 each pre-order (or $13 at the door). Your Manning student does NOT need a ticket. They will be at the Student Council sponsored dance that evening.

Chili entries are accepted in red, green, and vegetarian/other categories. Chili chef? We provide the spoons and tasting cups. We ask that you provide a large crock pot of chili, a serving ladle, and any condiments you think enhance your chances of winning (cheese, sour cream, onions, etc.). Hot dogs will be available for siblings who may not be into chili tasting.

Do you have something to donate to the Silent Auction?

Want to help??? We will need volunteers before the event, during the event, and to provide desserts. Sign up here on our Chili Cook-off Sign Up Genius. We will contact volunteers in late September. Email Clare Cantwell at if you are interested in helping.
