SH Rotary’s first chili cook-off to fund its program for scholarships

August 2nd, 2013 · No Comments · Community

The Signal Hill Rotary will host its inaugural “Chili Cook-Off” on Sunday, Aug. 4 at Curley’s Café, 1999 Willow St., to raise funds for its newly formed New Generations Scholarships program. The program provides up to 14 college scholarships to local 6th- to 12th-grade students from surrounding schools.
The Signal Hill Rotary is welcoming local chefs, organizations and others to compete in the event, which will take place from 11am to 3pm. Community members are invited to attend, contribute a $3 tasting fee for the cook-off and partake in the subsequent ice-cream social and ceremonies from 2pm to 4pm. A joint vendor fair will be hosted at Signal Hill Petroleum.
Signal Hill Rotary members Elizabeth Wise and Candace Yamagawa are leading the development of the scholarship program.
“As servants of our communities, our scholarships will reward students, not only for academic achievement, but for dedication and service to their communities,” Yamagawa said. “Through a weighted system of evaluation, our highest ratings will be given to students who have a proven track record of community service and volunteerism.”
For more information regarding the cook-off or New Generations Scholarships, contact President Seve Gilpin at seveann@yahoo.com or (562) 961-3434.
