If you're an Auburn fan that would love to hit Harvey Updyke in the face with a pie you'll probably want to head to Mobile, Alabama on Sept. 27.

Updyke, who is famous for being an insane man that likes Alabama and loves poisoning trees to prove it, has agreed to appear at a charity event in which he'll appear in a dunking booth and also allow people to throw pies at his face. The event was organized by T.J. Hodges to help raise money for the family of John Oliver, a boy who died from cancer in July. Hodges told ESPN.com that he thought of the idea to include Updyke at the event and that Updyke said "he'd do whatever we wanted."

So you can hit Updyke in the face with a pie and raise money for charity at the same time. It seems like a win-win to me, and I'm guessing there will be a long line of Auburn fans waiting for their shot.

Updyke was sentenced to six months in jail after poisoning the oaks at Toomer's Corner, and served 76 days of the sentence. He was then sentenced to five years of probation and banned from ever attending any college sporting event for the rest of his life. He's also banned from Auburn's campus and was ordered to pay $800,000 in restitution to the school.

No word on whether or not Auburn will accept pies to the face as legal tender.
