On April 9 from noon to 2 p.m., the Tippie Elected Staff Council had a celebratory "Cookie Feast" for the students, to recognize them for winning the competition. The student organization that donated the most items in correlation to its membership was Women in Business.

"This was such a successful drive, and we couldn't have done it without everyone's effort," said Vicki Vavra of the Tippie College Undergraduate Program Office. "It was fun to have the challenge."
