Public relations group use their heads, whipped cream to raise over $100

The Public Relations Student Society (PRSSA) charged people to throw plates filled with whipped cream into their faces today to raise money for their organization.

“Just do it,” said Steve Garcia, a member of PRSSA, to encourage a woman who was gearing up to throw a plate in his face. “We signed up for this! It’s alright!”

PRSSA set up their table in front of the Miron Student Center around noon with a cardboard cutout which served as a bulls eye for their faces. People had the opportunity to throw a plate for $3.

By the end of the event, the group raised $113.

The PRSSA has run a number of charitable campaigns for local organizations. Last year, they collected toiletries and donated them to Covenant House in Newark.
