Eat Delicious Pie while Helping End Cancer

The ladies of Rho Epsilon Pi have been selling pie in Usdan since last Thursday in an effort to raise money for Relay for Life. Today, they will sell pies for the last day until their pie eating contest on 4/20, ahem the day of Relay for Life.

Trust me, you won’t want to miss these pies. So, stop by the tables in Usdan from 12 to 2 p.m. or from 5 to 7 p.m. today, and bring your cash!
