$1.00 is all it takes to see our Coaches and Leaders get a pie to the face! Shine Club will be hosting a fundraiser starting Thursday October 10th - Thursday October 17th. Donation buckets will be set up in the cafeteria during lunch. The more money we raise, the more pies will get thrown! As a bonus, for every $1.00 that you donate your name will be placed in a bucket, and you could be the lucky student who gets to pie one of our leaders! The "pieing" will take place Friday October 18th before 1st hour.
