4/4/2013 10:46:00 AM Ed Foundation fundraiser now "pie in the face"
The Cannon Falls Ed Foundation's annual hair dye contest has morphed into a "pie in the face" contest.
A chance to throw a pie will be auctioned off the night of the annual CFEF auction fundraiser on Saturday, April 20, at Mill Street Tavern. Also in the event of a tie, both Pie in the Face "winners" will get the pie.
The six nominees are Pat Dougherty (Packer fan), Ron Freeberg and Jimmy Nelson (insurance tycoons), Greg Wulf (banker), Beth Giese (superintendent of schools) and Bill Priest (top dog at the local hospital).
Voting jars will be located at Merchants Bank, First Farmers Bank, White Rock Bank (not at the EconoFoods location), Mayo Health System-CF, Hi-Quality Bakery, at the Cannon Falls High School and at Althoff Hardware. The candidate whose jar receives the most money prior to April 20 wins - and the candidate gets a pie in the face. For the tech savvy, voting may be done at https://sites.google.com/a/cf.k12.mn.us/cfef/.
The Cannon Falls Education Foundation is in its twentieth year raising funds for school activities and supplies that the normal school budget cannot fund. Many of the recent projects have included the MAC computer lab, upgrades and additions, Smartboards used in the classrooms, software for classes, special field trips and educational speakers brought to the school. As the state budget continues to tighten, the Ed Foundation is needed more than ever to allow Cannon Falls' teachers to get the tools they need to provide the best educational experience for their students.
Those wishing to donate for the live and silent auctions should contact president Geri Geiken at Freeberg Insurance 263-4276 or any board members. Money donations can also be made at GiveMN.org.
