The Nord Country School is hosting its 9th Annual Pie Auction and Tri Tip Dinner on Sunday, March 13th at Manzanita Place (in the Chico Elks Lodge).
It is the major fundraiser for the year for the charter school, which has a waiting list at 185 students. Past benefits have helped the school add a 7th grade level and there are plans for adding 2 new classrooms and expanding the new school farm this spring and summer.
Nord Country School reopened as a Charter school several years ago, after it was closed as part of cost cutting measures by the Chico Unified School Distict.
The fundraiser on March 13th begins at 5 p.m., it includes a tri-tip dinner, silent auction and the main event of the evening ... a live Pie Auction with Auctioneer Kevin O'Callaghan.
For information on sponsoring a table, making a donation or purchasing a ticket call Junell Lawrence at (530-) 891-3138.
