NAKland is a carnival style event that is hosted by the Gentlemen of Nu Alpha Kappa Fraternity to celebrate “Día de Los Niños” (Children’s Day). We focus primarily on inviting low-income elementary schools within our community, however anyone is free to attend.
NAK land consists of games/activities, sports, face painting, food, entertainment, egg hunts, prize give-aways, and much more. Best of all, this event is FREE and open to the public. Stop by and have a day filled with fun.
NAKland 2009 was the first time this event was hosted in Reno, and it was a great success. It was held for the children at Sierra Vista Elementary School where over 250 children and their families attended. They partook in games like beanbag toss, rubber duck racing, and bingo. Also facilitated sports like football, soccer, basketball, and dodge ball; two bounce houses and giant slide, and face painting for the younger children. Raffle tickets were given to each child that came to the event and prizes like Easter baskets, sports gear and even two new bicycles were given away.
NAKland 2010 was moved to the University of Nevada, Reno. Hosted right outside of the Joe Crowley Student Union, it was an ideal central location with easy accessibility and parking. The campus atmosphere also called for education advocacy. We believe it’s never too early to start thinking about college. Our egg hunts were held at Hilliard Plaza and behind the Student Union. Once again, there was plenty of club/org participation, entertainment and fun. Prizes such as Nerf Guns, dolls, sports gear and bicycles were also given away. Once again, NAKland was a great success with more than 300 children and families.
For NAKland 2011, we are planning for more Nevada Club/Organization participation. Our success is due to the support of the University and the community and for this reason we call for any support. We are expecting over 400 families and children, thus any help with our event will be deeply appreciated. Contact your nearest NAK for proper referral and info.
