‘Cream’ Brown for a good cause

It’s a gag as old as the Three Stooges, and probably a lot more. A cream pie to the face! What’s more fun than that?
It’s even more fun when it’s not your face, and when the target has agreed to the smear all in the name of a good cause.
MP Patrick Brown is taking one for the team during the second intermission of the Jan. 29 Colts’ game at the Molson Centre. It’s all part of an ‘In Your Face’ personal fundraising campaign, in which the biggest donor gets to plant one square in the kisser of a willing recipient.
Funds raised will go to the United Way of Greater Simcoe County to help support its more than 60 programs and services.
“The United Way is a vital organization in our community,” says the MP. “It helps those in need in so many different ways. I am really happy to be part of this fundraiser even if it means getting covered in pie!”

Brown will be one of eight local dignitaries taking a pie in the face for a good cause. The highest-bidding throwers, eight of them for the eight willing faces, will also receive a ticket to the game, courtesy of the home team.
The other good sports are Mayor Jeff Lehman, Ward 8 councillor Jennifer Robinson, CFB Borden Commander Col. Louis Meloche, Ward 10 councillor Alex Nuttall, Barrie Police Chief Mark Neelin, Colts’ owner Howie Campbell, and B101 morning host Jamie Hall.
All donations will support this year’s $1.6 million United Way campaign goal. Donors will receive a charitable tax receipt and a certificate of participation with a picture of their chosen pie recipient taking one in the face for charity.
