Award-winning THON Bingo slated for Dec. 10

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The third annual Gift Card and Gift Basket Bingo, sponsored by the Penn State Schuylkill Alumni Society and Schuylkill Benefitting THON student group, will be held at 1 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 10, at the Walk In Art Center in Schuylkill Haven, Pennsylvania.

Players will have the chance to win a variety of gift cards and gift baskets. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door and include 20 regular games of bingo and four special games. Food and refreshments will be available and all proceeds from the concession stand will benefit the Alumni Scholarship Fund at Penn State Schuylkill. No outside food or beverages will be permitted.

The Penn State Schuylkill Alumni Society Board was recognized by the Penn State Alumni Association at the 2016 Volunteer Awards Dinner for their outstanding THON Bingo event fundraising efforts.

THON, the largest student-run philanthropy in the world, engaging more than 15,000 students across Pennsylvania, has raised $127 million for the Four Diamonds Fund since its inception in 1977. The event’s sole beneficiary, and a leader in the fight against pediatric cancer, the Four Diamonds Fund fills in the funding gaps that insurance leaves for the patients it serves, enabling families to focus on caring for their child.
