THON Now Blogging, FTK

THON is expanding beyond the world of Facebook fan pages and Twitter to complete a social media trifecta with its new blog, aimed to educate volunteers and donors about different aspects of the philanthropy. There have already been interview posts with Overall Chairperson Kirsten Kelly and members of the Overall Committee, inspirational videos, and an insider’s look into the Donor and Alumni Relations committee.

“Our goal for the blog is to provide a behind-the-scenes look into different events, THON weekend, and exactly what the Four Diamonds Fund does at Penn State Hershey Medical Center,” Public Relations Overall Chairperson Jony Rommel said. “We will be updating every week to spotlight not just the committees and organizations but also Four Diamonds families, medical and research initiatives at Penn State Hershey Medical Center, and personal stories.”

The blog will be managed by Public Relations Alternative Media Captains, who are also in charge of the new Social Media page under the Press section of THON.org.

The addition of two new businesses has led to a extreme price war, with owners vying to have not only the best prices but each claiming their flavors are the best. Since we know our readers don’t have the time to try them all and decide for themselves, we did it for you and have decided which really hits the spot.
