The “Chili Cook-off and Bingo” event last week filled the Shelter Cove Community Clubhouse. The next fundraiser is planned for Feb. 11.

Last week’s event was presented by the Shelter Cove Pioneers to benefit the Shelter Cove Volunteer Fire Department, with support from Shelter Cove C.E.R.T. (Community Emergency Response Team). The next event is scheduled to support Whale Gulch School to help their senior students with a trip to the east coast.

Whale Gulch School High School has been fundraising for over a year for an educational east coast trip with teacher Julia George coordinating the planning. The students have sold See’s Candy, homemade fudge, Tamales, enchiladas, held bake sales, sold hamburgers and sold their printed photography on canvas. Parents have made large contributions for their individual student as well, and have also received a grant from the Grace Us Foundation.

This event is their final fundraiser event.

Their trip is March 28 to April 7, they intend to visit Boston, Salem, New York and Washington D.C. and will include landmarks, museums, a U.S. Capitol guided tour and more.

The theme for the Feb. 11 event will be “Valentine’s Day” and will offer a Mexican dinner.

Festivities begin at 5 p.m. and Bingo starts at 6 p.m.
