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.

Watching the tv coverage of this event, as a nurse, I’m very worried for the people that got “pied”. It appears they aren’t wearing any eye protection. It appears shaving cream was used in the pies. This could irritate eyes. Please do things differently in the future.
