Beaver freshmen will dance in upcoming THON

2/15/2011 —

Penn State Beaver freshmen Jesse Bonincontro and Omosalewa Akintilom were selected to represent the Beaver campus by dancing in the two-day Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon (THON) that will be held from Friday, Feb. 18 through Sunday, Feb. 20, at the Bryce Jordan Center on Penn State's University Park campus. Bonincontro is a Division of Undergraduate Studies major from Oakdale, Pa., and Akintilom, a liberal arts major, is from Ellicott City, Md.

Since its inception in 1973, THON has raised more than $69 million to benefit The Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Children’s Hospital. All donations made at Beaver campus will be credited to the campus.

Campuses and organizations are competing to see what groups will raise the most money for THON. When you make a gift to THON, you can ensure that Penn State Beaver will receive the credit by going to www.thon.org and designating 'Beaver' at the prompt. In addition, donors can contact Judson Sammons, Beaver campus residence life coordinator, at jbs23@psu.edu or 724-773-3952.
