Penn State York students in a in human development and family studies class have planned a pro-wresting fundraising event on Saturday, Dec. 6 to benefit Y.O.U.T.H.

Students in HD FS455, development and administration of human services programs, planned the event as part of course work in class taught by JeanMarie St. Clair-Christman, Ph.D., assistant professor of human development and family studies at Penn State York.  St. Clair-Christmas believes it is important for students to take part in events that benefit nonprofit organizations in the community.
