Late Night Relay for Life Fundraiser in State College Tonight

If the urge to snack hits you while strolling the streets of downtown State College this evening keep an eye out for Relay For Life volunteers selling snacks at various locations. There will be three tables set up outside Rapid Transit, the Family Clothesline, and the CVS on Beave Ave. from 9:30 p.m. to 3:00 a.m.

Hot dogs will be sold for $2, meatball subs for $3, and if you're looking for an extra push to keep you buzzing through the night you can grab a Rockstar energy drink for just $1. Make sure you're carrying cash as credit cards and LionCash will not be accepted.
