Highlighter Themed Concert to Mark 11 Days Until THON

With only 11 days until the big weekend, THON is unmistakably in the air. To celebrate the countdown, a sextet of local bands, dance teams, and a cappella groups will star in Highlighting Hope — A Concert Benefitting THON tonight at Alumni Hall in the HUB. Tickets are five dollars, with all proceeds benefitting THON, and doors open at 7:00 p.m.

The concert will be backlight highlighter themed, presented by My Hero Zero and the Penn State Marketing Association.

The Statesman, The Pennharmonics, and NOTA (None of the Above) — three student-run a cappella groups — will also perform. The Urban Dance Troupe, recently named Penn State’s Best Dance Crew, in addition to Tapestry, Penn State’s primary tapping team, will also put on sets.

Mr. and Mrs. THON will host the concert. For those unfortunate few who do not keep up on THON-related pageants, Mr. THON is Tyler Bank from the Rules and Regulations Committee while the title of Mrs. THON is held by Lindsay Bloom from the Entertainment Committee.

Here’s the event’s official preview video:
