Wars raises over $900
BILL DAY '03 - CONTRIBUTOR
In a contest that defied all expectation, Burnett House emerged
as the Penny Wars champion. After a deafening cacophony of debate regarding
counting inaccuracies, a massive recount gave Burnett the victory. Profiting
from $55.20 in penny contribution, Burnett netted a striking -$31.00.
Quinby House also deserves kudos for earning the highest
gross, an eye-catching $164.06. Bittersweet congratulations are in order
for Baxter House, which, with $133.55 in silver and paper, garnered the
most ill will of any of the houses.
The Up 'til Dawn team would like to remind everyone that the
true winners are the ailing children around the world who benefit from
the important research conducted at St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.
All told, Penny Wars and the delicious bakesale raked in $931.25. On behalf
of the hospital, Up 'til Dawn extends its most sincere gratitude to the
Bowdoin campus for this wonderful contribution.
