State College Spikes to Hold Fundraiser FTK
If you needed a sure sign that the THON season is right around the corner, look no further. The State College Spikes game on September 2 at 6:05 p.m. will benefit THON, an annual event held by the local Pittsburgh Pirates minor league affiliate. Tickets are $6 and a portion of the proceeds will go to support THON’s efforts in raising money for pediatric cancer.
Similar to past years, the events that day will include a pre-game line dance, Four Diamonds families in attendance, a silent auction, and fireworks following the game. Tickets can be purchased in the THON office at 210 HUB, and must be picked up by August 31st at 3 p.m. The office will be open Monday August 27th through that Friday August 31st 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
In addition to the annual Spikes game, you can also do some shopping to help out THON. The Dance Marathon Alumni Interest Group, or DMAIG has partnered with Macy’s in their “Shop For A Cause” event. By purchasing a $5 shopping pass online here, you will receive 25% off regular, sale and clearance items and 10% off electronics, watches, furniture, mattresses, and rugs/floor coverings. The shopping pass is good for August 25th only, but can be used online and in stores. The best part is that 100% of the proceeds from purchases made using the pass will benefit THON and the Four Diamonds Fund!
These are two upcoming, easy and fun ways to help raise money, so go watch a baseball game and get some of your shopping done For The Kids!
