DuBois – Members of the Penn State DuBois Business Society have presented a check for $5,485 to the DuBois Area United Way. 

Students raised the money by selling raffle tickets for a Las Vegas Vacation as part of their Casino Night event, which was held November 21 at Penn State DuBois.  The winner of the trip is Suzi Van Norman, of Richardsville, PA, who said she’s already made the arrangements for the trip, and can’t wait to leave.

Business Society President, Casey McKinney said more than 150 people turned out for Casino Night, where casino-style games were played using false money.  A Chinese auction and 50/50 held during the event raised over $700 for the Business Society.  “It went really well,” said McKinney.  “We want to make this an annual event.”
