Theta Chi has a rich tradition of fund raising for the Penn State Dance Marathon in the past and this upcoming year should be no different. Last year, our fraternity raised $30,000 and our goal for the 2011THON is $40,000. This year, we are motivated to fundraise like never before because of the fact that ourTHON child, Carly Mitchell, lost her fight to cancer at the young age of 5. Since being assigned Carly last fall, we slowly began to see the horrible effects that childhood cancer has on both a young child and the family as a whole. We have provided her family with immense support and this THON season is completely dedicated in her honor.
However, we cannot raise $40,000 alone as undergraduates through our canning trips and THONvelopes. We need the support from our Alumni, their friends, and their relatives to fight this horrible, horrible disease. We understand the times are tough, but any donation truly helps our cause.
All donations above $25 are tax deductible under the code 24-6000-376 and they can be sent directly to our chapter house, 523 S. Allen St., State College, PA, 16801. You can also donate online by going toTHON donation page (click here), and please make sure you designate Theta Chi as your Greek Organization.
We thank you in advance for your support in the THON fund raising season!
