Several months ago, Stella Brockman School and the local Chili’s Grill & Bar held a carnival for a good cause.

Students from the leadership class, restaurant employees and student council members worked together to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital via the Chili’s Create-A-Pepper Childhood Cancer campaign.

Today, Stella Brockman School and Chili’s are again working together, with their efforts for this carnival benefiting the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.

“All of the money will go (to the American Cancer Society) in honor of the student and teacher we lost this year to cancer,” said parent and coordinator Amy Albrecht.

The carnival will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the multi-purpose building, and during recess or lunch while not interrupting valuable classroom time.

Students can purchase tickets at 25 cents each.

These tickets can be used for face painting or prizes from playing such games as golf ball putt, soda ring toss, face painting, football toss, beanbag toss, and the fish bowl toss, to name a few.

Located at 2262 Daniels St., Chili’s and its other restaurants throughout the country continue to be active in various campaigns as related to fighting childhood cancer.
