DuBois – Members of the Penn State DuBois Business Society and Marketing 301 recently presented a check for $2,275 to DuBois Regional Medical Center (DRMC) to benefit the Hahne Regional Cancer Center. 

 

Business Society and marketing students raised the funds during Casino Night, which was recently held on campus in conjunction with the campus THON Committee. The event raised a total of $4,550, and the two student organizations split the proceeds in half, donating their shares to the organization or cause of their choice.  The THON committee chose to support THON, the Penn State Dance Marathon, which annually benefits the Four Diamond Funds for kids battling childhood cancer.

 

Admission for Casino Night was free and open to the public.  False money was used for casino-style games such as blackjack, roulette, craps, poker, bingo and more. Funds were generated through a silent auction with gift baskets, merchandise from local businesses, and Penn State items up for bid.
