This month, UV had many Fall themed events for our Residents to enjoy! We kicked off "Spooky Season" with a Movie Night outside by the pool! We played the Halloween movie, "Hocus Pocus," gave out popcorn and candy, and had a Fall Themed Basket giveaway. Next, we hosted our first Pumpkin Painting event! 15 residents had the opportunity to paint their own pumpkins.
In addition to our first two events, we launched our Annual Resident Appreciation Week! Day 1 of Resident Appreciation Week was our "Grab and Go Breakfast Burritos" event! Starting at 7am, our Residents were able to grab a freshly made breakfast burrito while they were on their way to class, work, or our study rooms. Day 2 was our Mega Fall Giveaway! Where we gave away 2 passes to Halloween Horror Nights in Universal Studios. On Day 3, we hosted a “Create your own Candy Apple" event! Residents had the option to select an apple, there sticky base (caramel or chocolate) and their own toppings. On Day 4, of our Resident Appreciation week we hosted a Halloween Scavenger Hunt! We had 3 hidden pumpkins around the community, each with a prize associated with it. On the same day, we had a special guest, "Michael Myers" walking around property giving out tickets to enter into a raffle to win an Amazon Firestick. The last day of our Resident Appreciation Week was UV's First Oktoberfest! We had a blow-up waterslide, catered Fall-themed desserts and drinks, DJ, and a special guest appearance from "Bang" Energy drinks and "RoomDig."
For our last two events, our residents experienced reverse trick-or-treating and our Halloween Pool Party on October 30th along with a Halloween Costume Contest to win a $50 Target Gift card! We hope all of our Residents had a wonderful time at our events this month!
