Nobody asked what was for dessert at the Drumheller Dragons game against Camrose on Friday night.

The first intermission saw half a dozen celebrity volunteers take a cream pie in the face for the DinoArts Association.

They were the losers in a fundraising challenge that saw the winners hit them in the face with a pie at centre ice. Perhaps the biggest surprize saw Western GM's Mike Bell take one from Jamie Worman of Drumheller Chrysler.

"It was probably one of the sneakiest victories you'll ever hear of in the history of anything," crowed Worman, who kept his fundraising total hidden until the last minute. "I was sandbagging; a guy like Mike knows a lot of people, he's a very popular guy. The fact that his pie was the only one that stuck to his face absolutely won this for everyone, I think."

"(It was) kind of underhanded and shady, like most Dodge sales guys," joked Bell. "But it was for a good thing and we had a lot of fun; it was great."

"Obviously, I don't think he's going to pass the drug test, the urine test after the fight here," he continued, referring to the power of Worman's pie throwing arm. "He hit pretty hard, so I think things are going to come out in my favour in the long run."

The other matchups saw Mayor Heather Colberg pie CAO Darryl Drohomerski, John Shoff got Landon Bosch, Lisa Hansen-Zacharuk got to pie Jonathon Campbell, Joanne Contenti took care of Chris Sadler and Drum FM's own Jason Blanke wore a Brooks Bandits jersey to take a pie from Country 91's Addison Reece.

The total amount raised for future DinoArts projects was just over $10,000.
