Cookie Dough Sales = Cool Place for Kids to Play

So, it won’t buy the trees in the background… but money made from our Cookie Dough Fundraiser could help us get this amazing shade structure!

Our goal is to raise $10,000 from this cookie dough sale. That’s our share of the grant.  The rest – the KaBoom foundation will cover.  The goal for each student – 15 boxes of cookie dough.  It is a high bar, but this will make a huge difference on our playground.

This year, we’ve found even yummier cookier dough to sell.  They are made with premium ingredients, zero trans fat, and are Kosher certified.  Did we mention – they’re still yummy??!!

The 5th annual Cooper-Young Community Association/Peabody Elementary Chili Cook-Off was a huge success. We had a big crowd, lots of enthusiastic contestants and raised $1,500 for improvements to our playground!  That’s even more than was raised at last year’s event.

Mayor AC Wharton, Congressman Steve Cohen, and Shelby County School Board Commissioner Tomeka Hart all attended.  Peabody kids even wrote letters to our representatives to advocate for the importance of play in education and enhanced playground facilities.
Here are the results of the contest: 
Judges’ Choice – TFA (Teach for America) Chili by Dominique Mendoza and Emily McMillen
People’s Choice – Wendy Sumner-Winter
Best Hot – Glenferno by Glen Thomas
Best Unusual – Textbook  Chili by John Shoemaker and Team Whitworth by Jason Whitworth

Many thanks to PTA parents Mandy Grisham and Josh Spickler for organizing the event and the many volunteers who helped make this happen!

Many thanks to our neighborhood partner – The Cooper-Young Community Association.
