Local Businesses Offering Perks & Deals To THON Dancers

46 hours and $10,151,663.93 #FTK later, THON 2018 has come to a close. To reward and thank dancers for their seemingly herculean efforts, local businesses are offering specials and perks to those who poured their time and effort into the fight against childhood cancer.

If you danced this past weekend, check out our list of State College establishments that would like to extend their thanks to you. (Unfortunately, no foot massages are included.)

Penn State Campus Dining

On Tuesday evening, any dancer can stop by one of the five on-campus dining halls for a complimentary dinner. All you need to receive your free meal is your dancer number.

The Gaff

In order to thank dancers for their efforts, the Shandygaff will be open Monday, a day on which the bar is usually closed.

The Phyrst

The Phyrst will play host to THON bands all week long, and dancers who present their number can enter for no cover charge. A dancer number grants access to a FTD (For The Dancers) wristband, and tonight will be kicked off by a performance from Burn Unit.

R U Hungry

Monday through Thursday, R U Hungry will give dancers their choice of a free 1/2 pound Big Bite boneless wings, fat sandwich, large specialty wrap, or loaded fries. All you need to do is stop in with your “badge” (presumably your dancer number) to get your pick.

Did we miss anything? Let us know in the comments so dancers can take advantage of every opportunity to get some free swag after sacrificing 46 hours of sleep and much of their sanity.
