Model UN raises money with pies

Have you ever had a teacher give you an ‘F’ on a paper you didn’t deserve? How about a ticket from Park ‘n Pony that you received from parking in a “Do Not Park” zone for just one second?  Students got their revenge Tuesday night.
 

The IRC’s Model United Nations team hosted Pie a Professor, a fundraiser to support their trips to Taipei, Taiwan and Chicago this semester.  
 

For $5 in advance, or $7 at the door, students could get their “just dessert” and pie various professors and administrators.  
 

Those contributing to the cause by getting pied included teachers, administrators, residence hall directors and greek members.
 

“I’ll do anything for fundraising,” Chelsea Brown, Model United Nations faculty advisor, said. “I am pleased to be pied for the cause.”
 

“This creative concept came from a bunch of brainstorming with the group on how to help lower the overall cost, and we all just really got in to it,” Dana Lea, SMU sophomore and Model United Nations member, said.
 

Over 225 students planned to attend this fundraising event, with which the Model UN team planned to achieve their goal to lower the cost of the trips for their students’.
 

Before the event, according to Brown, the United Nations team is short of their goal by about $4,000 dollars, and, they hope after fundraising efforts from this event, they will reach it.
