Volunteers Needed for Community Fall Festival

October 07, 2010 / by / 0 Comment

WHAT: GCU’s vision is to fill the campus with live entertainment, game and food booths, and inflatable rides for children to play on … and invite the entire community to come and enjoy a free, fun-filled evening of entertainment on our campus as a local Christian alternative to Halloween. This is a sponsored event, at no cost to visitors, bringing local businesses, organizations, and families together for a time of celebration and festivity. We are looking for a great night of fun with hundreds from the community joining us!

WHEN: Thursday, October 28
5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Before the Event

  • Sponsor a game or food booth: Each student group is asked to host a game or food booth. (To avoid duplicates, all booths must register with the Office of Spiritual Life. Call Terri Faust at ext. 6750 or email tfaust@gcu.edu to register.) Registration forms are also online at http://my.gcu.edu/Students/SpiritualLife/Community/Pages/FallFestival.aspx.
  • Chili Cook-off: The Guild is sponsoring a chili cook-off with all proceeds going towards scholarships for students. Register to submit your chili for this event by contacting the Office of Alumni Relations at ext. 639.6418 or dfraser@gcu.edu. Deadline for registering is Tuesday, October 26. All entries must be brought to the Mariposa Lawn on Thursday, October 28 by 4 p.m. for judging by the Guild members. The chili will be placed in containers for serving at the festival so all contestants can take their pots with them. The winner wins a $50 gift certificate to Chili’s Restaurant! If you can not enter your chili into the contest, you can donate cheese, onions or fritos. Contact the Office of Alumni Relations to donate.
