Jamarius Jones, 17, gets a “pie” in the face at Chapel Hill High School’s Tiger Chill fundraiser in September 2012. The festival raises money for sports teams, the PTA and clubs at the school.


— Chapel Hill High School will hold its second annual Tiger CHill Community Carnival from 3 to 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21. Admission is free. Tickets for games, food and activities will be sold at the carnival’s entrance.

“This year we are really excited to offer sledding on real snow, and several brand new inflatables,” said Tammy LeMoine, co-chair of the PTSA Tiger CHill Committee. Additionally, students have been busy creating more than 40 kid-friendly games such as potato sack races, pie in the face and hammer balloon pop.

A full roster is slated for the soundstage, including performances by Chapel Hill High’s Chamber Choir and Jazz Band, McDougle Middle School’s Band, The Beau Brummels, Lucky 13, The Necks, Tim Rinehart Trio, and Ladies and Gents. Kim’s White Tigers Taekwondo and Skipsations will also demonstrate their skills.

Sondra Komada, PTSA president, appreciates the support.

“A long list of business sponsors have been very generous with their financial support, which has helped to offset the overhead expenses of our carnival,” she said.

“We are hoping that Tiger CHill will generate lots of funds for Chapel Hill High School’s clubs, teams and PTSA this year; especially in light of the tightened school budget,” she said. “We are expecting lots families from the community come out and have a great time for a good cause.”

The high school is located at 1709 High School Road in Chapel Hill. Free parking will be available at the high school. Additional parking will be available at Smith Middle School.
