NOW: Carroll University’s ’Pie Your Professor’ event raises money for Children’s Miracle Network

WAUKESHA, Wis. (CBS 58) – A special fundraiser at Carroll University gave students a chance to throw pie at professors – and it was all for a good cause.

The first “Pie your Professor” event aimed to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Pies cost $1 to throw from a distance, and $5 for a direct hit.

Students and staff had an ambitious goal.

"I had a lot of people say no. Unfortunately a lot of professors were like ooh, I have class at that time or I can't make it, but we're just lucky to have a few professors out here to start it off, and maybe this can become an annual thing," said Emily Gillingham, student at Carroll University. 

Among the people volunteering to take a pie to the face were Carroll University President Cindy Gnadinger and Provost Mark Belgen.

The fundraiser was put on by Carroll’s “Dance Marathon” student group.
