The fundraising effort was launched in September by Inclusive Opportunities Association, a non-profit society in Middleton, N.S., created to help people with disabilities find employment.
Inclusive Opportunities Association started a live Facebook video in the afternoon to feature the event.
According to the organization, McNeil said he’ll take a pie in the face if the Inclusive Opportunities Association Vice President Donnie Maclean raises $600, and as of Saturday, they have raised more than $3,000.
The Premier also agreed to have additional toppings added to the pie for every $100 raised above the $600 goal.
“We truly hope to put a large dent in our financial goals to secure a location and begin the stages of opening and operating a Resource Centre in our Community,” said the organization on their crowdfunding page.
The organization would need well over $100,000 to open and operate their resource center.
