Penn State York’s THON Committee will hold a basket bingo on Sunday, Jan. 30 with proceeds going to The Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon, fondly known as THON, to help children with cancer through the Four Diamonds Fund at the Penn State Hershey Medical Center. Doors open at 12:30 p.m. with bingo beginning at 2 p.m. in the Conference Center of the Main Classroom Building at Penn State York, 1031 Edgecomb Ave.

The event features Penn State Longaberger baskets along with many others valued at more than $3,000. Food and drinks will be available for purchase. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased on campus outside the Lion’s Den, Joe and Rosie Ruhl Student Community Center, Monday through Friday, 12-1 p.m. or at the door the day of the bingo.

The basket bingo is one of the campus’ many fundraisers in support of THON which takes place on Feb. 18–20, 2011, at the Bryce Jordan Center in University Park. The campus will send two local dancers to participate in this 46-hour dance marathon which has raised more than $69 million since it began in 1973. The THON theme for 2011 is Together Without Limits.
