Chili cookoff

MOORE — The Moore High School Band Booster Club is conducting a chili cookoff and two auctions 6:30 p.m. Friday in the Commons area, 300 North Eastern Avenue.

The cookoff and auction event is the Booster Club’s second largest fundraiser of the year, and will help fund the Moore High School Band trip to Washington, D.C. to march in the 4th of July parade.

Price for admission is $5 per bowl, $3 for students, and no more than $15 for families. Chili judging will begin at 6:00 p.m. and dining will begin at 6:30 p.m. Following the meal will be a silent auction and a live auction.

The Booster Club is seeking crockpots of chili for the cookoff and dinner, as well as items for the silent auction. Auction items can include anything from trinkets such as jewelry, tools or purses to perishables such as pies and cakes.

Any food donations would be much appreciated, as the club’s goal for the cookoff is 25-30 crockpots of chili. Food donations should be dropped off at the Commons between 4:30 p.m. and 5:45 p.m.

Individuals interested in competing in the cookoff are asked to notify Karn Buntin via email at or by phone at 405-325-6153.
