Pie Your RA, FTK!

Whether you love or hate your RA, but especially like raising money for children battling pediatric cancer, be sure to get excited for this Friday.

FutuRES, a THON fundraising organization, will be hosting its annual “Pie Your RA Benefiting THON” event this Friday, 5:30 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. in Pollock Commons. The inspiration for the event comes from the organization’s roots, as it was founded by a group of RA’s.

If your RA is not already participating, you still have the chance to convince them to take one FTK and bring them to the event. You also have the option of bringing anyone to the event to be pied, as long as you are willing to pay, and they are willing to be pied.

Also, among those getting pied are several members of FutuRES and maybe even some special guests.

A plate of whipped cream thrown from five feet away will set you back one dollar, and it will cost another dollar to add chocolate sauce. If you do not want to risk missing, you can pay $5 and smear the pie into your victim’s face.

For more information, visit the Facebook event page here.
