Personally, I feel the most amazing contribution from Penn State is a 46-hour student run dance marathon to raise money for pediatric cancer affectionately titled, "Thon". Every year there is a fundraising gala held in New York City for Thon called The Hope Gala. My college roomie and I are trying to make it an annual tradition for us. We rent a hotel room, get dolled up and do a decent amount of drinking and eating!
This year the event was held at The Edison Ballroom in Times Square and it was beautiful! The event itself raised $74,000!
Here are some pics from the event and of course our super budget friendly gala ensembles!
