TSA is affiliated with the American Cancer Society and the TSA State officers have conducted a “Pennies for Pie” fundraiser the last few years in order to make a donation to ACS. This year we want to step up our efforts and let TSA members show their true character and raise five times more money than was collected last year.  

The changes to “Pennies for Pie” are as follows:

First, we will be collecting chapter donations for ACS from your local chapter fundraising efforts. The chapter that donates the most money wins the opportunity to choose who will have the pleasure of putting a cream pie in the face of one of the state officers. Additionally, this year, that chapter also gets to choose 2 others to pie from their own chapter. This could be the advisor, any one of the chapter officers, or a chaperone if they so choose. The idea here is that you could conduct your own “Pennies for Pie” campaign and use loose change voting from now until conference time to help collect the funds for a portion of your chapter donation. Those checks should be made out to Alabama TSA and should be earmarked for “ACS Pennies or Pie”. These will be collected and tallied during registration.

The second part of “Pennies for Pie” are the voting buckets of each state officer. We thought we would make that process more fun and hopefully raise a larger donation by doing the following. All monies, paper or coins count as positive votes.

Then to cap off our evening entertainment we will suit up the two chosen chapter members from the winning chapter and the state officer with the most votes and deliver a big sloppy pie to the face of all three.
