Fundraising

This event is a great opportunity to enjoy an afternoon of friendly competition with your colleagues in the College of the Liberal Arts. It also serves as the biggest fundraising event we do throughout the year. We encourage each team to raise as much as possible leading up to the closing ceremonies. A trophy will be presented to the team with the highest total. You can start fundraising immediately! Please turn in your cash or checks made payable to Liberal Arts United Way, with your team name on the envelope, to either Trisha Everhart (119 Sparks) or Sherri Bumbarger (138 Sparks), by Friday, July 31. (Additional funds may be turned in up until game day, but we would appreciate having most of the money in advance!)

Games

We will have some old favorites, and some new games to keep the competition interesting!

Volunteers

We need you! If you aren’t on a team but want to be involved, we would love your help! Please email to volunteer.
