Though the COVID-19 pandemic has upended normal operations, including canceling many Mini-THON events, Four Diamonds remains committed to conquering childhood cancer. Tomorrow, Four Diamonds is hosting Giving Day FTK, a day-long virtual fundraiser to support the children and families battling cancer at Penn State Children’s Hospital.
Giving Day FTK will culminate in an online celebration featuring performances by Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Andy Grammer and Go Go Gadjet, to thank and celebrate donors, Four Diamonds families, care providers, volunteers, and THON and Mini-THON students.
Day/Date: Thursday, May 21
Time: 7 a.m. – 7 p.m – Giving Day FTK
7 – 8:30 p.m. – Virtual celebration with a pre-show starting at 6:30 p.m.
Location: Online at www.FourDiamonds.org/GivingDayFTK
A variety of gift matching incentives will be available throughout the day of giving, thanks to a generous group of donors. Gift match incentives begin at 7 a.m., and will feature special opportunities for gifts to be doubled or tripled at specific times of the day. All gifts will benefit Four Diamonds, and can flow through the Four Diamonds fundraising program of the donor’s choice.
Four Diamonds Mini-THONs are multi-hour, interactive events modeled after the Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon, or THON, held each year at University Park. The money raised from both programs benefits Four Diamonds, which assists families with children being treated for cancer at Penn State Children’s Hospital. Money supports the families through world-class care and financial support, as well as groundbreaking research for new treatments and a cure for all childhood cancers.
