DUBOIS, Pa. — A spaghetti dinner to benefit THON at Penn State DuBois, originally scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 6, has been postponed due to unexpected delays in a campus renovation project. The dinner is now planned for 4 to 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 30, in the Student Union at Penn State DuBois.
The cost per person for the spaghetti dinner is $7. All proceeds will benefit the Penn State DuBois THON committee's efforts to support University-wide THON efforts. Penn State's dance marathon challenges dancers to stay on their feet for 46 hours to raise money for the Four Diamonds Fund. The event's sole beneficiary, and a leader in the fight against pediatric cancer, the Four Diamonds Fund fills in the funding gaps that insurance leaves for the patients it serves, enabling families to focus on caring for their child. Because of large donors like THON, Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital recruits world-class talent to continue innovative research, and to maintain and expand the state-of-the-art Children’s Hospital.
Those attending the spaghetti dinner are also welcome to take in a performance by the Reggie Wayne Morris Blues Band that evening from 7 to 8 p.m. in Hiller Auditorium, near the Student Union. For more information, contact the Office of Student Engagement at 814-375-4764 or [email protected].
