Pie Throwing Fundraiser nets over $600

The EJGH Wellness Center staff wanted to take a pie to the face to help beat cancer. And, the Wellness Center members were more than willing to be the ones throwing the pies.

All in good fun to support our Capital Campaign to build the new Outpatient Oncology Infusion Center, members of the Wellness Center were front and center wearing protective goggles and challenged Wellness Center members take aim with a whip cream pie for a small donation. Wellness Center members donated over $600, and everyone had a great time.

Williams, who is built more like the curvy singer Beyoncé than the supermodel Naomi Campbell, smiled when the comment was relayed to her after her 6-3, 7-6 (5) victory at the Western & Southern Open, her final tuneup for the United States Open.

"I've never used me and skinny in the same sentence," Williams said. "Maybe me and thick, or me and curvy or sexy, but not necessarily skinny."
