Carnival favorites to reign supreme at 2012 State Employee Charitable Campaign fundraiser this week

Students, faculty and staff are invited to “a BCD Country Fair.” The event, which is in celebration of the 2012 State Employee Charitable Campaign, is scheduled for 11 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. Oct. 24 in the sixth floor lobby.

Get your fair favorites, including:

  • Cheese nachos – $2.50 (add 50 cents for chili)
  • Cotton candy – 50 cents
  • Popcorn – 50 cents
  • Drinks – $1

For 50 cents, try your hand at the carnival games, and for a dollar, you can participate in the cake walk.

All proceeds benefit the State Employee Charitable Campaign, which began Sept. 1 and runs through Oct. 31 for staff and faculty interested in contributing a one-time donation or giving through automatic payroll deduction for the next calendar year. Employees can opt to contribute to one or more of hundreds of select charitable organizations across the state.

You can search SECC affiliated charities by clicking on Charity Search, located at the top and middle of the enrollment screen. Under Search Options, select Dallas as the search area if you would like to give to local charities.
