On February 25, 2020, PEAG hosted their 17th Annual Chili & Soup Cook-Off. This was the only event held this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The event raised $229 to support student scholarships.
On March, 5, UW-Parkside hosted its second Parkside Day.
The event raised a whopping $143,923 for student scholarships.
PEAG participated in this fundraising event by hosting therapy puppies in the library and a photo booth. The dogs were a big hit with students and staff alike, and the #PEAG hashtag was utilized across social media.
While PEAG will be unable to host a new Chili & Soup Cook-Off in the spring of 2021, the group remains dedicated to raising money for student scholarships and is currently brainstorming additional means of fundraising. With the Wyllie renovation, a future event would need to be sustainable without electricity. When we get back on campus and can host something new, keep an eye out for a possible Bake-Off!
Thank you for the time and energy you give through PEAG to raise funds for student scholarships.
