Basketball Coach Patrick Chambers will donate $14,200 to THON after 1,420 students came out to the basketball game against Iowa last night.

Chambers has been a staunch supporter of THON since he was hired as Penn State’s head coach two years ago. Just last week, he shaved his hair to raise money and awareness for the charity and the “No Hair, Don’t Care” campaign.
Despite the loss last night, Chambers wanted to make an impact because he won’t be able to attend THON this weekend to speak, as was initially planned. Either way, 1,420 students paid $7,100 for tickets last night and turned that into $14,200 FTK!
