Second annual Penn State Worthington Scranton Zumba-THON a success

November 30, 2012

The second annual Zumba-THON at Penn State Worthington Scranton (PSWS), sponsored by the PSWS Alumni Society and the campus' Blue and White Society, was a great success, beating last year's totals for attendance and fundraising.

More than 100 dancers participated in the event, which took place Nov. 28 in the campus gymnasium. Local Zumba instructors volunteered their time and skills to lead the dancers during the two-hour event, which raised more than $1,200.  Last year's event had about 100 participants and $1,000 was raised.

Participants paid a $5 donation at the door, with all the proceeds going to THON. Campus groups and local businesses also donated a variety of items, which were raffled off during the event.

At the end of the event, the campus' THON dancers --  Bev Martin, a liberal arts major from Susquehanna, and Jennifer Smith, division of undergraduate studies, from Dunmore, were announced.
