November 5, 2021 – Penny Wars has returned to Santa Fe College for another year. Penny Wars is a fundraiser for the United Way of North Central Florida with all proceeds raised being donated as part of SF’s United Way Campaign.
Penny Wars pits SF students against staff members to see which team can raise the most money for the United Way of North Central Florida. The object is simple – each team gets points based on the money that gets put in their respective jars located across the Northwest Campus. Change adds to a team’s score, while paper money takes it away.
In addition to raising funds, and in order to make things just a little more interesting, there is also the annual “pie-in-the-face” at the end of Penny Wars. If the staff wins the competition, Student Body President Trevor Mathisen will receive a pie in the face courtesy of President Paul Broadie II. Should the students defeat the staff, President Broadie will get the pie in the face from Student Body President Mathisen.
The rules of Penny Wars are simple.
- Penny = 1 Point
- Nickel = 5 Points
- Dime = 10 Points
- Quarter = 25 Points
- $1 dollar = -100 Points
- $5 dollars = -500 Points
- $10 dollars = -1000 Points
- $20 dollars = -2000 Points
Donation jars are located in Coffee 101 in the Library, the lobby of Building S, the SF Bookstore, and the lobby of the Administration Building.
If you want to see Student Body President Mathisen get a pie in the face, put your change in President Broadie’s jar and put your dollar bills in President Mathisen’s. If you would rather see President Broadie get the pie in the face, put your change in for Mathisen and bills in for Broadie.
Updates on the totals will be provided in the Today@SF and final results will be revealed at the end of the United Way fundraising campaign. Details on when and where the pie in the face will occur will be made available once everything has been finalized.
