Campus Residential Dining proud to be a part of THON 2017
Thousands of Penn Staters ignited hope through THON, with one goal in mind: fight pediatric cancer. Students, volunteers, and Four Diamonds families participated in 46 hours of dancing, standing, and no sleep, all the while raising $10,045,478.44 for the kids. Penn State Campus Residential Dining supported the passionate students during the philanthropic event and proudly fueled the dancers with healthy eating options throughout the February 17-19 weekend.
The Campus Dining provided dancer meal included a freshly made salad, fruit, and rolls. With a happy stomach, students were reenergized and able to keep dancing!
As THON festivities got under way, Penn State Campus Residential Dining handed out hot chocolate so students could stay warm while waiting in line to get into THON.
Once students entered the Bryce Jordan Center, music filled the air, surprise guest performances were made, and lots of dancing ensued! The energy in the crowd was nearly tangible. In order to maintain that cheerful spirit for THON's entirety, Campus Dining donated 250 meals and snacks throughout the weekend to student volunteers.
Further, with many families visiting Happy Valley to support the cause, $7 meal deals were also offered at all five dining commons.
To acknowledge the dancers for their dedication, on Monday, February 20, all dining commons offered dancers a free meal.
