We may not have fall leaves in Tucson, but that doesn't mean we can't get into the spirit of the season. This year's College of Nursing Halloween Spooktacular, a fundraiser for UA Cares, kicks off on Oct 1 and goes through the end of the month. There's a little something for everyone, including a competitive fundraising campaign, a costume contest and potluck, a raffle and a nacho sale. Take a look at the line-up of frightfully fun events:

Keep the Change Fundraising Competition Oct 1– 31

Three water jugs representing students, faculty, and staff, that will be placed outside the OSAA (CON Room 112), ready to be filled with extra change. The group that raises the most pocket change over the month --  with proceeds being donated to United Way -- wins the competition.

Winning team receives a $25 gift card from 1702 Pizza.

Door Decorating Contest Oct 1 – Oct 31

A $5 donation enters you into this year's Door Decorating contest, which challenges faculty and staff to festoon their portals with the most chilling decorations their imaginations can conjure up.
