Vicie DeLisle and Gregg Hawkins hold the Troy Tulowitzki jersey that is to be given away on March 29 at the Jack Hawkins’ Memorial Scholarship Night at Delta High School. Anyone purchasing a ticket at the gate is eligible to win.
Come one, come all! The fourth annual Jack Hawkins' Memorial Scholarship Night has been set for Thursday, March 29, at Delta High School.
This year's festivities include the usual faculty-student-alumni basketball games slated to be played between 6 and 8 p.m.
Admission for the fun-filled night is $5 for adults and $3 for students. Admission includes a chance to win one of 10 two-topping family-size pizzas or a Colorado Rockies Troy Tulowitzki autographed baseball jersey.
The evening's activities will also feature a chili cook off between the Delta Volunteer Fire Department, Delta County Sheriff's Office, and the Delta County Ambulance District.
The sheriff's office is offering three chili choices for the palate — the Petty Offense chili will be a mild chili for the weak-hearted; the Misdemeanor Chili which is a bit warmer or medium temperatured culinary delight for the more adventurous diner; and The Felony Chili that is intended to test one's ability to withstand a more robust chili experience.

As the evening progresses, those attending the evening's events will have the opportunity to sample all the prepared chili, including Wendy's chili. Once the chilies have been sampled (excluding Wendy's) guests will vote for the chili they believe to be the best (voting for one of the three groups cooking the chili).
The cost of the chili experience (all you can eat) is $5. That price includes crackers, beverage, and Meadow Gold ice cream.
There will also be a silent auction for items donated from the business community.
This year's Scholarship Night is sponsored by Shreeves Automotive Repair, Kwiki Tire Service, Delta Hardware-ACE, Colorado Beverage, DHS Class of 1962, Beauty and the Bling, Papa Murphy's Take and Bake Pizza, Sunflower Room, The Kneaded Touch, and TLT Photography.
All proceeds from the evening go to scholarship funds!
Don't miss this night of fun and remembrance for Big Jack!
