More than a dozen Pi Kappa Phi members participated in a March 30, 2017, “Pie A Pi Kapp” fund-raising event for the Purdue University Dance Marathon (PUDM) in Purdue’s Stewart Center.
By donating $1 to $10 – depending on the concoction of their self-made “pie” – folks could smash, smear or throw a pie in the face of chapter members. The event raised $249 for PUDM and its benefactor, the Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis.
PUDM is dedicated to two students who died during their undergraduate days at Purdue each year. One of them was Pi Kappa Phi’s David Feltner, who died of a rare childhood cancer in 2011. A poster stood behind chapter members as they took “pies” to the face during the fund-raiser.
“Pie” concoctions could be made of ketchup, chocolate syrup, barbeque sauce, whipped cream and/or mayo.
