Hope, prayer and pie fling: Fundraiser aids little girl

Posted

Kona Ice is inviting Cleveland residents to fling at the Cleveland/Bradley Chamber of Commerce’s Melissa Woody for a good cause.

The shaved ice treat retailer will be presenting a Pie Fling from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, June 1, 2019 at Greenway Park.

For every $50 Woody raises, she will get a pie in the face. In addition, anyone who donates $50 will also get the opportunity to fling a pie.

“One hundred percent of the money raised goes to Olivia Weatherford and her family,” Woody said. “The other participants will be splitting their raised money between Olivia and Erlanger Children’s Hospital. These are great and worthy causes, and it will be a fun event.” 

Olivia Weatherford, 5, is the daughter of Aaron and Sarah Weatherford. She is currently undergoing treatment for cancer at St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital in Memphis.

Woody thanked Kyle Elrod, owner of Kona Ice, for putting on the event.

“We are praying for the Weatherfords daily, multiple times," Woody said. "You don’t have to donate $50. Any amount is great. If you want to throw the pie yourself, you must donate at least $50. You don’t have to be present to donate, if you are out of town.”

“Donate and knock yourself out!” Woody said. “Just be gentle and don’t knock me out!”

Pies will be thrown at 11 a.m., with Woody serving as a target at noon.
