A northwest suburban principal provided an irresistible incentive to get students to raise money for a good cause.The principal of St. Peter Lutheran School in Arlington Heights let students throw pies at him.

Bruce Rudi took it in the face at an assembly held to announce how much money was raised in a "jump rope for heart" fundraiser.

The students collected about $6,000 for the American Heart Association.
