At the core of LCS’ apple pie fundraiser


LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Starting 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, cars will begin lining up to take home a Dutch apple pie from Lafayette Christian School’s pie sale fundraiser.

Volunteers spent hours on Monday and Tuesday assembling more than 7,000 pies by hand. LCS teachers and co-chairs of the pie sale Tina Eversman and Bridget Winger told News 18 This Morning it’s a real labor of love.

“It’s great to see the community involved [in making and selling the pies] from Purdue students to grandparents and parents,” said Winger. “We raise over $70,000, and it really benefits families and keeps our tuition where our families can afford to go to our school.”

Eversman detailed all the work that goes on behind the scenes to get the pies ready for the public.

“They’re made in the [school’s] gym. We start with the crumb topping, then the peeling and the coring, and then to the U-line where we mix the cinnamon and sugar,” said Eversman. “Then they’re put into the freezer truck outside. They’re frozen solid, so they’re great for holding on to or for now.”

The pies will be sold in a drive-thru style line at the school on the Brown Street side. Pies are $12 each and can be paid for in either cash or check. The school is at 525 N. 26th St.

The pies will be sold from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Friday or until pies run out.
