Kappa Alpha hosts first KArnival to combat muscular dystrophy

APSU’s Zeta Tau chapter of Kappa Alpha Order sold more than 600 pies and raised $3,508 for the Muscular Dystrophy Association with their “Pie in the Face” and “Karnival” events on Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 5 and 6.

On Monday, attendees paid $2 to pie any of the KA brothers in the face at the fifth annual Pie in the Face event, and it was the best turn out yet, raising approximately $1,200. The “pies” were disposable plates filled with whipped cream.

The following day, KA held a new event called KArnival to raise money for MDA.

The event included music, food and activities such as an inflatable obstacle course, raffle, fishing, corn hole, pool noodle toss and darts. Approximately 250 people bought tickets for the event, which raised $2,800.

Several sororities including Alpha Omicron Pi, Alpha Delta Pi, Chi Omega and Alpha Sigma Alpha also contributed to the event by bringing food and games.

KA Sergeant at Arms Drew Large said the event would not have been possible without the help of APSU sororities and donations from Moe’s Southwest Grill and Freeze Pleeze Ice Cream Shot. Large said he had an incredible committee and amazing brother support.

Junior chemistry major and KA member Lane Parmely said the proceeds were going to children who really need the money, and he was having a good time.

Junior health and human performance major Jesse Voss said the Karnival was a good event and he had an overall good time.

Although they are unsure of the exact date, KA plans on hosting the event again next year for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
