Mini Thon is Huge Success

Park Forest Middle School students, faculty, and staff worked for months to prepare for April 15- The third annual Park Forest Middle School Mini-Thon, benefitting the Four

Diamonds Fund at Hershey Medical Center.  Students raised money in a variety of ways.  Many sponsors donated services for the event, including Nittany Entertainment, who donated the sound and light system and DJ Jeff Tranell, who also teaches 6th grade at the school.   Students started the evening with a spaghetti dinner and then stayed on their feet and danced the night away and played games until midnight.  Four Diamonds kids and families addressed and motivated the dancers throughout the evening. When the grand total was announced, it exceeded expectations and $30,000!
