Five Indianapolis Public Schools principals have been invited to participate in the “Chopped for Good” fundraiser hosted by Southeast Community Services this Friday.

“Chopped for Good” will help Southeast Community Services raise money for “Brackets for Good,”a yearly March Madness-style event where the organization competes against other community entities across the city. Contestants in “Chopped for Good” will receive a list of four mystery ingredients on Wednesday and then have to create a gourmet food dish based on those ingredients.

Principals Susan Mahoney from Eleanor Skillen School 34, Ann Toombs-Heiple from James A. Garfield School 31, Marjorie Lindeman from Paul I. Miller School 114, Aleicha Ostler from SUPER School 19 and Kathleen Miller from William McKinley School 39 will all be competing in this year’s event.

“I am excited about the opportunity to get the Southside principals together for a great cause,” Mahoney said. “Southeast Community Services is such a support to many of our schools, and to be able to give back is a great way to say thank you. A little friendly competition is fun, too!”

Community members are invited to come out and be the judge at this exciting event! Admission is $5, and you will receive one voting voucher and be entered for door prizes! You can also purchase additional tickets to help the contestants advance to the next round of competition!

We hope to see everyone on Friday cheering on his or her favorite Southside principal! For more information on the event visit the Southeast Community Services Facebook page!
