Sixty-one cans of whipped cream stood at the ready and the plates were prepared, but it was no waiting for dessert.
Instead, there were 300 paper plates filled with whip cream intended for the faces of the Cedar Creek Community School student council and Principal Darin Hahn during the school’s annual Pie in the Eye event Dec. 21.
The third-, fourth- and fifth-graders had an opportunity to purchase 25-cent raffle tickets for a chance to throw a cream pie, said organizer and teacher Carol Krupke.
The event raised $500 that helped make Christmas better for local families in need, she said.
Each student council member donated two cans of whipped cream to the event so all of the money raised by the students went to helping the families, Krupke said.
