Valentini’s Hosts Chisholm Chili Warm-Up
This past February, the Chisholm Community Foundation joined forces with Valentini’s Supper Club in a fun, unique friendraiser called the Chisholm Chili Warm-up. We coincided the event with the Polar Bear Days’ event “Sled the City,” allowing folks to “warm-up” after a fun afternoon of sledding in downtown Chisholm.
We divided and conquered by having CCF board members selling tickets and helping out on the sledding hill, as well as folks serving up meal orders for both Covid-friendly curbside and indoor dining. All-in-all, we ended up selling 160 tickets and raising over $1,400 for the Chisholm Community Foundation. On behalf of all CCF board members, I would like to thank the staff at Valentini’s for their wonderful collaboration and teamwork in this event with us. As we are nearing the end of spring and welcoming the summer season, we are looking forward to more community involvement and fundraising events that can help us work toward furthering our vision of stewardship and investment in our wonderful city of Chisholm.
Class of 1968 Gives Back!
After celebrating the 50th reunion of the Chisholm Class of 1968, it was decided to donate the remaining fund balance of $1,380 to the Chisholm Community Foundation in appreciation for the good start in life graduates received by living in the community of Chisholm. Our class has had many reunions over the past 50 years. This year’s two-day event, held at Tom & Jerry’s and Valentini’s Supper Club, was described by many as fun, a great time and restorative. It’s good to give back to the town that helped shape who you are! Members of the Class of 1968 are pictured below.
