Penny Wars at Penn State York raised more than $465 for the American Red Cross during a recent fundraising event.  Penn State York's Lion Ambassadors challenged other student clubs at the campus to put their pennies to good use and raise money for victims of hurricane Katrina.

Representatives of a variety of clubs positioned containers outside the Lion's Den in the Joe and Rosie Ruhl Student Community Center, and encouraged members of the campus community to donate their spare change. Clubs participating in the Penn Wars were the Christian Fellowship Organization, Outdoor Adventure Club, Biology Club, Rainbow Paws, York Chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management, Asian Culture Club, SCROUNGE, Student Government Association,  Belly Dancing,  Martial Arts, College Republicans, Hispanic Student Association, Black Student Union, and the Lion Ambassadors.
