A Pie In The Face, The Result Of A Good Cause
Students and staff at Bemidji’s St. Philip’s School found themselves in a sticky situation today as the result of a good cause.
It was no ordinary day of class as students and staff celebrated a record achievement. For years, students have sold raffle tickets to raise funds for their school, but this year, there was an added perk: if students surpassed their goal of $15,000, they got to pie the school’s staff in the face.
To help with the fundraising effort, Catholic United Financial has played a key roll in the raffle since 2009, which is why their representative was happy to take a pie in the face.
With students surpassing their first goal, the eighth grade class felt they could do better, so if the school could reach $18,000, members of the eighth grade class would take a pie in the face as well.
While many laughed tears of joy at the spectacle, for some of the students throwing the pies, it was a bit nerve-wracking.
With a year of fundraising in the record books, the bar has been set high for next year.
Money raised from the raffle will go towards the purchase of Google Chromebooks and carts for the school.
