STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (WTAJ) — The Centre County Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association is hosting their “A Night of the Races” fundraising event tonight at 7 p.m.
The event will be hosted at the Knights of Columbus in State College. The Chapter, however, is taking a different approach to this particular fundraiser.
Those who attend can bet on taped horse races provided by Fundraising USA, a company out of Wilkes-Barre.
There will also be a silent auction as well as a 50/50 raffle.
All proceeds from this event raise money for local high school students to earn scholarships. It will also benefit THON, a student-led philanthropy that helps children and families affected by childhood cancer.
For more information on the event, visit the Centre County Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association Facebook page.
