Candyland for CASA raises over $800


Kappa Alpha Theta and Theta Chi, in partnership with Lehigh After Dark, held Candyland for CASA in Lamberton Hall on Tuesday.

The Candyland event raised money for Kappa Alpha national philanthropy CASA, the Court Appointed Special Advocates.

The organizations raised over $800 for the philanthropy. Several organizations, fraternities, sororities and campus clubs, participated in the event, which was also aimed at increasing campus unity.

“It was great to see so many people at the event and showing support,” Meri Weiner, ’16, said.

The event featured food, drinks, a variety of games and various musical performances throughout the night. For $5, students received a board game card and could play carnival style games such as corn hole, football throw, bra ball, darts, tic-tac-toe, and pong roulette to collect stickers for their card. After completing their board, students had the chance to win one of the raffle prizes from the Lehigh Bookstore, the Cup and more.

“A huge shout out to all of the organizations that held booths at the event” said Marissa Diamond ’18, Service and Philanthropy Director for Kappa Alpha Theta.“We are so grateful for the support we received from organizations around campus.”

All proceeds from this event will go to CASA, an organization that emotionally and financially supports foster children going through the court system and makes sure that foster children are safe and can thrive in all that they do.

“Candyland for CASA was a success and we are looking forward to keep improving it every year,” said Sanjana Chintalapudi, the Chief Marketing Officer for Kappa Alpha Theta.
