The event will have many fall activities ranging from bobbing for apples to a petting zoo for attendees to enjoy, on top of fall baked goods such as pumpkin bread.

“We’re expecting a lot of people … last spring our Shamrock philanthropy event had people lined up around the corner,” said junior Maggie Miles, a human development and early childhood education major.

With 160 sorority members, each selling five tickets, Miles is optimistic about the outcome.

Kappa Delta raises money for a different program or issue every semester, but they are looking forward to this fall event for the fall activities, according to Allison Horn, senior communications major.

“I’m really excited for people to come and support our philanthropy,” Horn said.

This year Kappa Delta is focusing on keeping a large amount of the sums local and making sure they benefit people in out community, senior communications major Sarah Klaus said.

“Something like 80 percent will stay local with Prevent Child Abuse Colorado, which is and we’ve never benefitted this group before so that’s also cool. Also, 20 percent will go to Prevent Child Abuse America,” Klaus said.

According to Klaus, the fall carnival will get people in the mood for fall. It is open to the whole community, not just CSU students, but also very family oriented. Last year they raised $7,000 collectively and are looking to raise more.

Tickets are $5.00 and can be bought from any Kappa Delta member, or purchased at the door of  the Kappa Delta Sorority: Phi Epsilon located at 412 W. Laurel St.
