Food fight? Coronado seeks to repeat against Palmer in unique restaurant fundraiser
Coronado High will face off with Palmer High Feb. 4-8 in a food fight.
OK, maybe that's a tad sensationalized.
But it is true that the two schools will be vying for who can attract the most business to the Chick Fil-A, 575 Garden of the Gods Road, between Monday, Feb. 4 and Friday, Feb. 8.
The school that can claim the most amount of money on those days resulting from orders placed in its name will get a $1,200 award from the restaurant. Second place will get $500.
It's the second year for the event. Coronado won last year, using the reward to help fund its annual Homecoming Parade. The parade will also be a major recipient of this year's earnings, according to Student Body President Dylan Roche.
To help their causes, students from both schools will decorate the store interior with their colors and logos (one side for Coronado, one for Palmer).
School activities are also scheduled inside the restaurant every night of the week. This will include a “Shaking It with the Principals” night Feb. 6, in which Coronado Principal Dave Engstrom and Palmer Principal Lara Disney will be making milkshakes, Roche said.
For Coronado, other nights will feature the cheer squad (Monday), the choir (Tuesday), National Honor Society (Wednesday), robotics (Thursday) and student government (Friday).
