BTN LiveBIG: Penn State hockey raising awareness

At Penn State, the annual dance-a-thon (aka THON) is arguably the biggest campus event of the school year. As is the case at Indiana – who we featured earlier this fall – THON raises an enormous amount of money in support of pediatric cancer patients and the search for a cure. Last year, THON raised $12.37 million.

Throughout the year, students come up with creative ways to raise money. And one of those unique opportunities is happening this week.

The women’s hockey team at Penn State has six authentic pink hockey jerseys up for auction, with the proceeds benefitting THON. Each pink jersey has the Penn State Nittany Lion emblem on the front, numbers on the back and shoulders as well as the symbolic blue stripe on the arms and base of the jersey.

The six jerseys up for auction right now are Nos. 2, 5, 19, 22, 25 and 31. The team will wear similar jerseys for its Feb. 1 game against RIT at Pegula Ice Arena with the remainder of the jerseys being auctioned off at a later time.

Bidding on these jerseys ends on Wednesday, Dec. 18.
