Students to host rock-a-THON

November 24, 2003

Efforts to raise funds for Penn State's annual dance marathon (THON), the largest college fundraising event in the country, are underway at Penn State Beaver. This Friday, Nov. 28, from noon to 6:30 p.m., the Beaver campus THON Committee will host its annual Rock-a-Thon at Batchelor's Furniture Store in the Beaver Valley Mall. THON raises millions of dollars annually in support of children with cancer and their families, who are assisted by THON proceeds given to The Four Diamonds Fund at Hershey Medical Center. Other THON events will be held before and after the holidays. For more information on how you can support THON efforts and / or make a donation, contact THON student chairman Abdul Al-Nakhli at or (724) 544-8056, or contact the Penn State Beaver Office of Student Affairs at or (724) 773-3953.
