Balls and Weiners for Sale Saturday Night

Now that the title caught your attention, let me explain the context.

This Saturday night from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m., Relay For Life of Penn State will be selling hot dogs and meatball subs at a few locations in downtown State College including:

  • In front of the Student Bookstore on College Avenue
  • CVS on East Beaver Avenue
  • Rapid Transit on Allen Street

The hotdogs will cost two dollars while meatballs subs will be a slightly more expensive three dollars with all of the money going towards fundraising for the American Cancer Society.

Why the food selection, and more importantly, why the name for the fundraiser?

“Sometimes Relay has to go out of the way to make a name for itself. What better name than Balls and Weiners?” said Maddy Pryor, Public Relations Overall for Relay For Life of Penn State 2013.

While the name may provide a few chuckles, the reason for the fundraiser should not be taken lightly. “Relay For Life is a great event that is celebrated throughout the country. We’re hoping to get our names out there while fundraising for the American Cancer Society. Everyone has a reason to Relay,” explained Pryor.

Envision your Saturday night. You watch the Penn State-Purdue game at 3:30. You go out to either a party or bar afterwards. Chances are that you will be hungry and looking for some late night food when leaving said apartment or establishment.

Scarfing down balls and wieners for a good cause or Canyon Pizza? It should be an easy decision.

Relay For Life is scheduled for April 13th and 14th at Medlar Field. And now, I leave you with this.
