The 2018 Chili Supper was a success, and we couldn’t have done it without you.

We know that making a pot of chili or working as a volunteer at the event or picking up tons of items for the Silent Auction is a sacrifice. But seeing so many of your families having fun with us and enjoying the food, costumes, preview of Spelling Bee, and our Haunted Hallways was a treat.

Thanks to all who attended and helped. Our staff & students are incredibly grateful!

The funds we raise at the Chili Supper every year help us award more than $30,000 in annual financial aid and gives us the stability to keep providing new theatre education programs for at-risk youth across the region. 

The winners of the big raffle drawing prizes were:

  • Cash Grand Prize: Sharon Lillie
  • Kentucky Kingdom: Dawn Durr
  • Amazon Card: Carrie Row
  • Tuition Drawing winner: Laura Gibson

Congrats to the winners!

Special thanks to all the businesses and individuals who donated items for the silent auction. As we head into the winter holidays, keep these supporters of the arts in mind for your friends and family!
