EVENT DATE: Jan 29, 2012
THON is well-known to most Penn State alumni, who help with fundraising activities throughout the country. The Los Angeles alumni are sponsoring an exciting event in support of THON and the Four Diamonds Fund – The Hollywood Dance-a-THON. This fun-filled event will be done in true Hollywood style, with a red carpet, celebrities and VIP’s, live entertainment (bands, musicians, DJ’s, comedians, etc.), and one-of-a-kind auction items. Dancers will be on their feet for the 6-hour event, raising donations from pledges for their efforts.
The mission of the Four Diamonds Fund is to conquer childhood cancer by assisting children treated at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital and their families through superior care, comprehensive support, and innovative research. The Fund offsets the cost of treatment not covered by insurance, supports the medical team that cares for the children and subsidizes pediatric cancer research.
