Jack Robey, Chili’s partner for St. Jude’s

Jack Robey Junior High School recently partnered with Chili’s restaurant in Pine Bluff to raise money for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.

St. Jude’s and Chili’s announced the kick off of their fifth annual Create-A-Pepper to Fight Childhood Cancer campaign. Chili’s restaurants observed National Childhood Cancer Awareness month by inviting people to get creative and raise funds to help St. Jude’s find cures for children with cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases.

The art department of Jack Robey made creative folders for each teacher at Jack Robey and from September 20-28, the class that raised the most funds won a Chip & Salsa Party from Chili’s. The event will be held Tuesday at 11 a.m.

Students of Jack Robey raised approximately $690. Billie Dorn’s class raised the most funds at about $350.

Nicholas Paxton, general manager at the Chili’s in Pine Bluff, will be at Jack Robey Tuesday for the party.
