Pies thrown, ties cut — United Way fundraiser: 2010

  Posted on: November 10, 2010

Pie on Rick Browning's face.

For several TRU staff and students Tuesday, Nov. 9 was the best fun at work ever.
Either they had dreamed about throwing a pie in someone’s face, or had longed to lop-off their leader’s tie. TRU’s Tie-Pie was just the chance for both, and all for a good cause, $1,603.00 was raised for the TRU United Way Campaign.

The champion fund raiser in the tie cutting was Cameron Beddome.
