Pancake Dinner Planned to Benefit THON

2/7/2011 —

DuBois – The Penn State DuBois THON Committee will hold a pancake dinner on Tuesday, February 15 from 3:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. in the student union.


Dinner will include pancakes, sausage, and a beverage, and is available for eat-in only.  Tickets are $4 for Penn State students and $5 for general tickets.


To purchase tickets, or for more information, contact Patrick Watkavitch at pjw5097@psu.edu


THON began in 1973, when dancers raised just over $2,000.  Today, it is the largest student-run philanthropy effort in the nation. In 2010, the event raised nearly $8 million for The Four Diamonds Fund, which supports childhood cancer research.  THON 2011 is planned for February 18 through the 20 at the Bryce Jordan Center, where dancers will attempt to stay on their feet for 46 hours. 


This year Patrick Watkavitch and Heidi Miller will represent Penn State DuBois at THON, as the campus' designated dancers.
