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 day of the event.  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 (506 Keller) or Sherri Bumbarger (138 Sparks) by the start of the event.

Games

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

Volunteers

We need you! If you are not interested in being part of a team but want to be involved, we would love your help! Please email Trisha Everhart (pxm205@psu.edu) to volunteer.
