Members of the Delta Mu Sigma Honor Society have announced that the haunted house held at Penn State DuBois this Halloween raised $2,000, which will benefit THON, and the Paint and Play Preschool of DuBois. THON, the Penn State Dance Marathon, benefits childhood cancer research.

 

"I am so grateful to be donating half to each of these great organizations," said Adam Snyder, chairman of Delta Mu Sigma.  "Both organizations benefit children who are either battling cancer, or attending preschool for an early education." 

 

The haunted house was held for three nights, October 28, 29, and 30, in the Smeal Building at Penn State DuBois. The honor society organizes the event each year as a fundraiser for THON, and other area organizations. Delta Mu Sigma also reaches out to DuBois and the surrounding area each year by offering community service such as a "Dine Out" event at Luigi's Restaurant, with part of the proceeds benefiting scholarship funds, and by volunteering with organizations like Habitat for Humanity.
