Pie in Your Eye for Charity

September 29th, 2009 by Adam

PLYMOUTH, N.H.-
What’s it feel like to get a cream pie splashed in your face? Ask the members of the Delta Zeta sorority at Plymouth State University, who happily volunteered for the messy duty in a fundraising event September 30.

For a one dollar donation, the sorority sisters allowed themselves to be pied, with the proceeds going to the Painted Turtle Camp, a camp for seriously ill children. The Lake Hughes, Calif., camp helps provide a life-changing experience to children whose daily struggles often diminish both their desire to be well and their ability to lead a rich, productive life.

Delta Zeta’s Christine Schultz said the fundraiser was successful because PSU students welcomed the chance to have some fun while contributing to a worthy cause.

“Even though it’s messy, we really had a lot of fun knowing that some seriously ill kids will benefit from our efforts,” said Schultz.

The Painted Turtle was founded by Paul Newman as part of the Hole in the Wall Camps for seriously ill children. The Delta Zeta donations will help children attend the camp free of charge.
