The theme for THON 2012 is “Brighten Every Journey. Last year, THON raised $9.5 million dollars for the Four Diamonds Fund, in their hopes to find a cure for pediatric cancer. This year, we want to help THON surpass that total, but we will need your help by joining us for the 4th Annual THON Night Out in Boston. The event will take place in the Boston Room (4th floor) at The Greatest Bar (www.thegreatestbar.com) on February 11th from 7pm-10pm. This year’s THON night out will consist of a trivia night with a special grand prize (TBA)! Throughout the night there will be a small raffle, a THON weekend mail station, drink specials (FTK), and a special presentation.
**Please note only cash and checks will be accepted for raffle items and tickets. All proceeds will go to THON!
If you have any questions or would like to volunteer to help with the event or make a tax-deductible donation toward THON, please contact Victoria Thompson at firstname.lastname@example.org.

"After lengthy consultation with senior level meteorologists, THON is canceling the third canister solicitation weekend. The weather forecast has changed significantly in the past 12 hours. There are reports of significant icing Friday night into Saturday afternoon across the regions frequently travelled to by THON volunteers for canister solictation, which present dangerous conditions for travel as well as canning. No student volunteers are permitted to travel for fundraising on behalf of THON this weekend.
We know this is disheartening news, but the safety of our vounteers is utmost priority. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to call the THON Office at 1-800-392-THON or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!"
