It's Time For Some Pies to Fly!!

It’s Pie-O’Clock and it’s time for some fantastically fun Pie-F-E-A Moments from our over-Pie-chieving Pie-ticipants in the Pie-F-E-A Challenge!!


We cannot say enough “Thank You’s” to all our Pie-ticipants for the energy and humor they brought to this campaign and to all of their wonderful supporters who made donations on their behalf in support of the IFEA and the IFEA Foundation!


Individual totals have been tabulated and together with some additional donations, we are excited to announce we raised a total of $14,215 in the Pie-F-E-A Challenge!

Thank you again for all your support of the IFEA, the IFEA Foundation and the Festivals & Events Industry!

And now . . it’s time for some pies to fly!!

Still Interested in Donating to the Pie-F-E-A Challenge?

Although the individual Pie-ticipant fundraising is over (sorry, we can’t sneak in any more pies!), we are still accepting donations to the overall Pie-F-E-A Challenge Fundraising Campaign. All funds raised will help the IFEA as we continue to support the Festivals & Events Industry by sharing important resources, presenting valuable education, providing critical information updates, helping establish and strengthen industry connections, and so much more!

* "Pie-F-E-A Challenge" Details

  • All “Pie-F-E-A Challenge” pie-ticipants have voluntarily agreed to receive one (1) Pie to their Face for every $250 they individually raise to support the IFEA and the IFEA Foundation.
  • If a pie-ticipant does not reach $250 raised, they can choose whether they still wish to receive a pie to their face, or they may choose to transfer their funds raised to another pie-ticipant, to help that pie-ticipant reach $250 and receive a pie!
  • If a pie-ticipant does not reach $250 raised, he/she agrees that any donations to that pie-ticipant are non-refundable. The IFEA Foundation and the IFEA greatly appreciate each pie-ticipant's donations and support.
  • If someone donates $25 to nominate an individual to receive a pie to the face, and the individual declines, the $25 donation is considered a non-refundable donation. The IFEA Foundation and the IFEA greatly appreciate each pie-ticipant's donations and support.
