Thanks for another great success!
Another Tiger Chill is in the books and thanks to all of you – the fabulous Tiger CHill Committee and many volunteers and sponsors - it was a rousing success! The way the school and community events calendar worked out this year, we had Tiger CHill later than in prior years. This afforded the opportunity to feature Halloween as a secondary theme for the event. Activities such as Pumpkin Bowling, Poke a Pumpkin, and the first ever Haunted House spiced up the event this year! Mindy Morton skillfully created and designed the entire Haunted House and it was a huge hit! New booths like the Mad Hatter Booth and a few costumes made it more festive than ever!
Entertainment went off flawlessly thanks to Mike Roth‘s stellar hosting skills and all the beautiful groups that donated their time and talents! It was fun to watch the Bailando Club dance to Propuesta Indecente, the Skipsations Group fly through the air with their jump ropes, all the fantastic A capella groups, Chamber Choir and Rock Bands. Parents of future Tigers were able to point out that some of these musicians are also teachers at CHHS when Corporal Punishment took the stage!
It takes a village to pull off Tiger CHill each year and in addition to the volunteers it would not be the same without all the wonderful staff that help coordinate the schedule, organize equipment, move picnic tables, trash cans, unlock doors, and offer to be in the dunk tank. Then there are all the fantastic student groups that come with such creative ideas and enthusiastic participation! We also had many willing volunteers to help man booths with a spirit that made us all proud to be part of this community. A special shout out to John Carosso who exemplified this spirit by working the Gauntlet all day, covering every shift – and then said he can't wait until next year!
Everything we raise goes to the school in some shape or fashion, to benefit the students! Some funds go directly to the students clubs while other funding will go through the PTSA budget to help support the kids’ classrooms. So please do not forget to thank those that have generously donated to Tiger CHill and allowed us to purchase the food we sold, the game supplies required and to rent the Gauntlet and Hi-Striker. Please look for these folks around town and frequent their places of business! They did a lot for CHHS and we are grateful for their support!

With all their sponsorship and the money raised we were able to exceed more than $16,000 in Community support! We are debriefing over the next few days on how to improve Tiger CHill or ways of attracting all CHHS students and their teams, clubs or organizations, so please let us know if you have suggestions. We are thrilled to have your thoughts and hear any ideas!
