The Elizabethtown High School Gay-Straight Alliance announced the results of their annual Pie a Teacher in the Face fundraiser, which was held from February 25 to March 1.
The group held the fundraiser as a penny war. Students donated change or paper money into jars with teachers’ names—coins added to a teacher’s total and paper money subtracted from the teacher’s total. The three teachers with the highest total — Mr. Good, Ms. Reist and Mr. Musser — were pied in the face on March 5. The group raised $105.70 in total.
The Gay-Straight Alliance holds the fundraiser each year to fund their trip to the Gay-Straight Alliance leadership conference at Dickinson College, which is sponsored by the LGBT Center of Central PA. The proceeds cover the registration fees for the club members.
