We had an amazing start to the 2019 Great Celebrity Pie Auction on WGEL! Thanks to our pie bakers and our generous community, the day-one total is $6,260! All proceeds go to the Lemuel Rhodes Cancer Foundation.
Our pie bakers on Tuesday were MGHS Principal Bobby Koontz, GHS Principal Kara Harris, GES Principal Eric Swingler, GJHS Principal Gary Brauns, Dusty Bauer & Chris Barth from the FNB Community Bank, Tim Watson from Arthur Young Chevrolet, and Bond County Sheriff Jim Leitschuh.
Day two is Wednesday, September 25. Our pie bakers Wednesday include Sorento Principal Amy Jackson & Pocahontas Principal Jason Rakers at 7 AM, Tyson Graber, Greenville First Christian Church & WGEL Farm Reporter Joe Doll at 7:30, Bond County Board Member Gerald “Spanky” McCray at 8:00 AM, and we close the day with Greenville Economic Development Dir.
