We’ve introduced a new feature to our already awesome chili contest — a silent auction! We’ve got a $500 Zoom Whitening package, a landscape consult and certificate, summer membership to the Rhodes College pool, certificates for swimming lessons, Rhodes College’s sports camp, and Idlewild spring soccer registration! We’ve also got Grizz tickets and gift certificates from local restaurants and businesses. See the list of items here!
