As our efforts to raise funds and awareness for Penn State’s THON have rapidly grown in the last several years, we are excited to unveil a new name and new look for our annual benefit coming February 2018!  Our new name, Night for the Cure, and our new logo, represent the best of Chicagoland alumni as we join forces to end pediatric cancer.

THON Mission

Since 1977, THON has raised more than $157 million benefiting Four Diamonds at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital. Four Diamonds picks up where insurance leaves off, enabling families to solely focus on care for their child. Assistance from Four Diamonds ensures counselors, social workers, music therapists and other specialists are available to provide comprehensive care in a family-focused atmosphere. Thanks to THON, Four Diamonds and the Penn State Hershey Medical Center recruits world-class talent to continue innovative research benefiting children worldwide.


If you would like to support our event in the form of an in-kind donation to our silent auction, as a financial sponsor or as a committee volunteer, please reach out to Leah Tunney.

2018 Recap

We are excited to share that that we held our most successful THON benefit reception to date on Saturday, February, 10th. Night for the Cure 2018, along with our year-long fundraising efforts, allowed us to pledge a  donation of $20,000 to THON 2018, which was included in THON’s total reveal of $10,151,663!  
Our efforts would not be possible without your generous support throughout the year. We sincerely thank you for allowing us to make this ground-breaking donation.
At this year’s event, 130 guests enjoyed gorgeous indoor and outdoor views at River Roast. With Chicago’s unparalleled skyline as a backdrop, guests enjoyed live music, cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and the chance to bid on amazing silent auction items. Please be sure to check out all of the amazing pictures provided by Inspired Eye Photography on our Facebook page.  

We would like to thank SoFi for being a proud sponsor of Night for the Cure 2018 and for joining us in the fight against pediatric cancer.
