Return of Thon-ye West

New Hope-Solebury official mini-THON, an all night fundraiser to aid the research for finding a cure for childhood cancer, is finally back! Once again we have teamed up with the Four Diamonds organization which amps it all up FTK-- For The Kids.
  Over the next few months leading up to mini-THON, expect student government to put the FUN in fundraising. Mini-THON is scheduled for Friday, Jan. 20, 2017 with a start time of 7 p.m. Of course it goes all night so it will end promptly at 7 a.m. the next morning.
  The first fundraiser that occurred during this past autumn sports season was Grill Squad. Eric Luo really wanted everyone to know, “Grill Squad was dope. THON is gonna be dope. Remember it’s for the kids.”
  Next stop on the mini-THON fundraising train is the Jules pizza fundraiser. This event conveniently is taking place on Tuesday, Nov. 22, from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. It is a perfect way to kick off Thanksgiving break and end a half day.
  When students return from Thanksgiving break on Monday, Nov. 28, there will be a mini-THON kick off assembly. At this assembly the theme will be announced along with exciting details of the event. The best way to make this a success FTK is to start raising money now. Over Thanksgiving, ask friends and family to think about making a donation. Start thinking about your mini-THON team names, get creative! One day we will dance in celebration. Until then we dance for the cure.
