It’s the most wonderful time of the year! This Wednesday, Nov. 12 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in HUB Heritage Hall, THON student volunteers will all come together to celebrate 100 Days ’til THON Weekend.

There will be cake, live entertainment and performances, an opportunity to hear a Four Diamonds family speak, and plenty of other activities throughout the day. As usual, the celebration will end on Old Main Lawn for the annual Silent Rave with the Giant Picture afterward. If you’re looking for some great music, THON’s playlist can be found on Spotify under the “EntertainmentFTK” account.

Here’s the tentative timeline:
