Administrator Pie-in-the-Face Challenge

This year seven brave administrators have taken the challenge and are participating in the first annual, Pie-In-The-Face Challenge, to raise money for a good cause. Each university leader has chosen a Wright State unit/activity as their designated charity. Starting February 1, purchase raffle tickets for a chance to throw a pie in the face of your favorite leader.  At the event, we will draw from all of the tickets purchased and three lucky administrators will take a pie in the face. A really lucky leader may even get their name pulled out in all three drawings—their charity will receive all of the money raised in the raffle. The pie thrower will be the individual who purchased the lucky ticket drawn.
