Why raising record totals for the State Employee Charitable Campaign was a piece of cake

The cakewalk at the “BCD Country Fair” could rival a rousing game of roulette at any casino — well, almost. It was certainly a draw at the Oct. 24 State Employee Charitable Campaign fundraiser.

As the cluster of hopefuls circled the cake display, cheers rose from the crowd with every winning spin.

Between the cakewalk, carnival games and heaping portions of chili-cheese nachos, the dental school raised $713.65, a record for SECC fundraising events. The popcorn and cotton candy didn’t hurt, either.

The fundraiser is one of the ways Texas A&M Health Science Center promotes the charitable campaign, a yearly initiative that allows state and higher education employees to donate to one or more charities of their choice through a one-time donation or by opting for automatic payroll deduction.
