(Outside) The First-Ever THON Showcase

The first-ever THON Showcase took place in Eisenhower Auditorium on Thursday night. The ‘Hidden Wonders’-themed event exhibited the talents of fifteen acts comprised of competitors from committees, orgs, and independent dancer couples. It was probably very good.

Unfortunately, our writer and photographer on the scene didn’t bring their wallets to the show, so they were unable to get into Eisenhower to cover the event. These dedicated staffers stuck around to grab some pictures and videos in the blistering cold as tens of Penn State students headed through the doors.

Watch droves of Penn Staters converge on the location of the first-ever THON Showcase.

THON is the largest student-run philanthropy effort in the world and has raised more than $147,000,000 for the financial and emotional support of families and research funding. The Penn State Dance Marathon will take place from February 16-18, 2018, all #FTK.

Sorry, folks, that’s all we got this time.
