This year, the North Carolina Chapter had its second Annual Pumpkin Sale! In honor of the spooky time of the year, our Chapter purchased small pie pumpkins and a few large Jack-O-Lanterns from a North Carolina farm to sell on NC State’s campus. We had many organizations, clubs and other Greek Life groups who pre-ordered or bought our pumpkins during the two weeks. We began selling pumpkins on the brickyard October 21st, continued to sell the pumpkins all the way through Halloween on October 31st.
Spending time on the brickyard with fellow brothers not only helped us raise money for our organization, but also strengthened the friendships we have made within the fraternity. Overall, we sold several hundred worth of pumpkins. After paying the farm for the pumpkins, we raised over $150 for our chapter! This money will help our brotherhood better advocate for agriculture by funding events like Agriculture Awareness Week coming up in the spring. A special shout out to Brother Daniel Wellons for making this amazing event possible!
