San Carlos Chickens' Ball Still Running Strong at 73.

San Carlos, CA, March 12, 2012 --( The longest running PTA fundraiser is still going strong. This year, the all-volunteer cast of the Chicken's Ball will perform Belles of the Barbary Coast. Funds generated this year will support our local schools' performing arts programs.

“The Chickens Ball is a great community builder and a fun way for the entire community to support our local public schools.” said Sonya Sigler, Chairman of the San Carlos Chickens' Ball. “One of the best things about the show is our multigenerational cast that really shows the kind of support San Carlos schools have from all of our citizens. This year, funds raised will go towards music, theatre and other performing arts.”

Carrying on a Grand Tradition

In 1939, San Carlos teacher Howard Demeke had the idea to bring members of the community together to raise a little “milk money” for the school children. He rallied the community and started a friendly “skit” competition. 73 years later, the Chickens' Ball is the oldest PTA fundraiser in the country and one of the longest continuously running shows of all time. This bawdy raucous and risque community tradition raises money for the seven public schools in San Carlos.
