The Montana Tech Biology and Pre-Professional Health Clubs will hold a pie-in-the-face fundraiser beginning at 1 p.m. Friday, Dec. 7, in the Student Union Building.
All proceeds go to “Bundle Up Butte,” a project driven by Montana Tech students to provide sweatshirts to youths in our community.
The participants, all from Montana Tech, are Provost Doug Abbott; Carly Sanon, women’s head basketball coach; Carrie Vath, dean of students; Scott Risser, department head of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences; Matt Stepan, athletic director; Jim Girard, geophysical engineering assistant professor; and Bob Green, former head football coach. Each participant can receive up to four pies — two guaranteed pies and two random drawing pies.
Tickets for the guaranteed pies can be purchased for $25 each. This opportunity guarantees you the ability to throw a pie at the participant you choose. The random drawing tickets are $1 each, seven for $5, or 15 for $10 and will be placed into each participant’s bucket and randomly drawn for winners.
Tickets are on sale now at the Montana Tech Student Union Office. They will also be available at the event.
At the conclusion of the contest, a special pie will be held for Bob Green. Silent bids to throw this special pie are being taken through Dec. 7. The highest bidder will have the opportunity to throw the special pie at Green. Silent bids can be placed by calling Sydney Jennings at 406-498-9483 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The winning bidder will be announced at approximately 1:45 pm on Friday, Dec. 7, at the event. If the bidder is unable to throw, a stand-in thrower can be designated.
What’s in this special pie? No one will know until the highest bidder splatters the pie on Green. The video of this last pie will be placed online. This is guaranteed to be an exciting throw with a guaranteed “Greenism” or two likely shared from Coach Green.
