Fourth grader at R-II, Katie Tyree, wins the iPad 3.

New Haven, Mo. – Generally the main event each year at R-II’s PTO Chili Supper is the “Grandma’s Pie Auction” and for the most part it still was.

However this year they raffled off an iPad 3, (The iPad) which drew quite the attention and everyone saying, “I already know I am going to win.”

Katie Tyree is about to handed her iPad 3.

It couldn’t have been more fitting that fourth grader Katie Tyree (R-II student) won the iPad 3.

Katie’s face turned bright red in disbelief as her name was announced.

Katie said, “I was shocked.  I had never won anything before.  I just can’t believe it.”

PTO Chairman Kathy Vandregriffe said afterwards, “Overall I think we did pretty good.  It seemed like all the kids were having a great time at the carnival and I don’t think there was much chili or soup left over.”

Kids were not the only ones having a good time; parents and volunteers seemed to be having just as much fun as you can see in the photos below.
