This year's Pie in The Eye event raised over $1,000 for Dubois County Relay for Life, and was considered the most successful in the seven-year history of the fund-raiser.
The top three earners received a pie tossed by Chris Hochgesang, last year’s top recipient. Third place went to Austin Bolton, who received a banana cream pie. Tyler Kirkman was awarded a chocolate pie for his second place finish.
Associates from Indiana Tool & Die held several fundraisers to make sure Department Manager Dave Sutton got his just desserts. Their efforts paid off as Dave had $770 raised against him, which was a record for money raised for an individual Associate.
After receiving his strawberry pie for being the top Associate, Dave earned a second pie from Ryan Nelson, who won a raffle for the opportunity to “deliver” it.
“We definitely could not be making a difference in Dubois County Relay (for Life) without the efforts of our Associates,” said Cori Sturgeon, Pie in The Eye event coordinator. “This activity is the most fun we get to do for Relay for Life every year!”
