Every year, hundreds of Penn State students jump, shake and shimmy their way to raising millions of dollars for charity at the school's annual THON fundraiser.
The legendary dance marathon has become such an effective fundraising tool that the members of Klinger Middle School's Builders Club have decided to put on their own benefit. Fortunately, they won't be dancing for three days straight. Instead, they will take the dance floor for two hours on Thursday, starting at 3 p.m.
Proceeds from the fundraiser will be donated to Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital. Those interested in contributing can contact Laura Brannen or Heather Harper, moderators of the Builders Club.
