Benefit Dinner and Free Christmas Show Offer Family Friendly Evening

12/2/2010 —

DuBois –Two community events at Penn State DuBois will make one great evening for area families and people of all ages, according to the Office of Student Life.  A spaghetti dinner to benefit THON, and a free community Christmas concert are both planned for the evening of Monday, December 6. 


"These are two separate events, but they're taking place in the same building and could both come together to make a nice evening out," said Student Life Coordinator Marly Doty. 


The spaghetti dinner is scheduled from 3:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. in the Lion's Den Café, in the Hiller Building.  Eat-in or take-out will be available, and will include spaghetti, roll, salad, and dessert. The cost is $5 for adults and $4 for Penn State students.  Advanced tickets are available through the Student Life Office. All proceeds will benefit THON, the Penn State dance marathon, which contributes to the battle against childhood cancer.


Christmas Around the World, will feature holiday songs from varied countries and cultures, and will be preformed by the Penn State DuBois choir, under the direction of campus music instructor Paul Fehrenbach. The show is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. that evening in the Hiller Auditorium.  Christmas Around the World is the December installment of the campus Performing Arts Series. All Performing Arts Series events are free and open to the public.
