THON Band Night set for Jan. 19
Rosematter, The Dunwich Horror, Hamilton Fish, and SkeletonProof Tanks are some of the groups to perform Friday, Jan. 19 at 6:30 p.m. when Penn State York hosts THON Band Night. The event takes place in the Joe and Rosie Ruhl Student Community Center. Proceeds from this event will go to help children with cancer through the Four Diamonds Fund at the Penn State Hershey Medical Center. THON, the Panhellenic Dance Marathon, is set for Feb. 16 – 18 in the Bryce Jordan Center at University Park, and this local event is to help raise funds to support it. Last year THON raised more than $4.2 million.
Penn State York will send two dancers, Kelley Dennis and Swara Shah, both sophomores at the campus, to participate in the event. The local THON committee hopes to raise $10,000 and the band night is just one of many fund-raising events. Cost for the band night is $5.
