Pie Throwing to Raise funds for the Special Olympics

Pie Throwing For a Cause Raises $500 for Wendy

Wendy Johnson works in the kitchen in the dishpit. She is going to the Vancouver Special Olympics this August to compete in 5 pin bowling and needs to raise $1000 to help offset her expenses.  Best Western Pembroke Inn wanted to help Wendy. We decided to have a pie throwing contest. Here are some of the images from that day where our executive chef of Westwinds Restaurant and the General Manager of the hotel seemed to be prime targets of the pie throwers.

Dale and Jon were not sure how the day would turn out but wanted to make sure every pie-thrower knew they would be willing targets. It did not take long for the crowd to respond. Unfortunately for Dale & Jon they both ended up pie-faced. However they were instrumental in motivating the crowd for donations to help reach Wendy’s goal of competing in the 5 pin bowling in the Vancouver Special Olympics.

There were no losers this day because the goal was to help Wendy raise the funds she needed to compete in Vancouver. After All pies were tossed $500 was raised which gets Wendy half way to Vancouver.

A big thanks for all donations, pie-throwers and receivers…we are half way there!

How can we help Wendy get all the way to Vancouver? We’re $500 short!
