The repaired 58 Business Bridge
Mecklenburg County YMCA CEO Michael DeNise took a pie in the face Saturday from Russ Messier (top right) to mark an organizational milestone — the Y’s 1,000th member. The sacrifice by DeNise made good on a vow from last year’s MCCSC fundraiser, when DeNise sold to the highest bidder a chance to throw a pie in his face once the YMCA reached the 1,000-member milestone. Russ Messier of Clarksville, the high bidder, claimed his prize on Saturday. In addition to the chocolate meringue pie that Messier threw, his wife Linda baked two pumpkin pies which were auctioned at $10 apiece. The purchasers also each earned a chance to “pie” DeNise.
