NEWS ADVISORY: OkSOBERfest tonight (Oct. 31) at Cushing Field House

OkSOBERfest, an annual event by the UNK Peer Health Education student organization, is set for Wednesday, Oct. 31, at the University of Nebraska at Kearney.

“Every year we plan this night of alcohol free fun for Halloween,” said Ismael Torres, UNK health education coordinator. “This year’s event will be a mini carnival with games and prizes that you would see at a regular carnival.”

The event will take place in the Cushing Field House from 8 – 11 p.m.

This year, peer health education received funding from Region 3 Behavioral Health Services and Loper Programming Activities Council (LPAC) for the event.

“Members of student organizations such as Peer Health Education, Alpha Omicron Pi, Alpha Phi and LPAC have volunteered to facilitate this event,” Torres said.

“There will be many booths with different carnival games such as: plate break, mini-golf and ring toss,” Torres said. “We will also have a costume contest with singles, doubles and group contestants.”
