Fundraiser set for Mooreland library

Woodward, Okla. — MOORELAND - Board members and volunteers for the Beyond the Pages organization are preparing for the group's 2nd annual "Chilly Out, Chili In" chili cook-off this Saturday.

The cook-off is held to raise funds for Mooreland's library as well as reading programs that the library offers.

Board member Jennica Kenny said the library support group is hoping to build off the momentum that starting with their first cook-off in 2012.

 "It was very successful last year, we had people from Woodward even from out in Freedom and Waynoka show up. I think we raised nearly  $4,000 which was so beneficial to helping to get our library doors open," Kenny said.

To make the event even better in it's second year, she said, "This year we've added a cake contest as well which we're excited about and we'll be handing out prizes for."

As part of the new "Take the Cake" contest, area bakers are invited to whip up their most scrumptious recipes and get creative with their decorations as entries will be judged on both taste and design.

Beyond the Pages will be accepting applications until Friday for chili and cake entrees, so there is still time to enter, Kenny said.

"We want to have as many chili and cake participants as possible," she said.

Those interested in participating in the chili cook off or the cake bake off can pick up a list of rules and an entry application at the Mooreland Library located at 223 Main Street, The Mooreland Leader, or at the Kenny Collision Center, or by e-mailing jennicak@hotmail.com.

The group would also like as many people from the public to come out and taste all the chili and cake entries this Saturday.

Kenny said the event is expected to start around 5:30 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church Life Center and tickets will be sold until they run out of chili.

"People pay a cover fee at the door then they're free to try as many chilis or cakes as they want as many times as they want," she said.
