Nursing center raises money with pies in the face

Pie Throwing

The residents and staff at the Mather Nursing Center in Ishpeming Township got to show their love for the administration in a very unique way today.

For $1, the center’s residents were able to throw, or in many cases, press a pie into the faces of the department heads. For the staff, the cost to pie a manager varied, but the costliest person to pie was center administrator Jim Cross at $10 a pie.

All of the proceeds collected from the event will be funneled back into the center’s activity department, which puts on special events for the residents. The occasion allowed everyone to laugh and let go of stress at the end of the week.
