Real Life Maine Cookie Monsters Swipe Whoopie Pies, Trash Fundraiser
The fundraiser, intended for 1,200 people was wiped clean of whoopie pies and other treats after a break-in.
Maine is known worldwide for whoopie pies. Tourists routinely stock up before leaving Vacationland, and some even have them shipped internationally. This past weekend, they were the centerpiece in a Lions Club fundraiser scheduled in Skowhegan, Maine.
According to NECN, culprits busted into a booth at the Skowhegan State Fair over the weekend and stole about 120 whoopie pies, and emptied a refrigerator full of cookies.
Oh, and instead of just taking a gallon of iced tea, someone drank half, and left it there.
John Youney, a director of the Lions Club told the Portland Press Herald “We’re a volunteer organization." “We raise money from the public and spend it back on the public. It’s just kind of frustrating to find out someone has just willy-nilly trashed your place.”
According to the Press Herald, Skowhegan police Officer Tim Williams said he could not comment on the investigation.
