Reading Royals night to benefit THONThe Berks County Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association and the Reading Royals are teaming up to hold a fundraising event to benefit THON on Saturday, January 29, 2011 at 7:05 p.m. at the Sovereign Center, 700 Penn Street in Reading. THON is the world's largest student-run philanthropy dedicated to supporting children with pediatric cancer and their families, as well as pediatric cancer research.
Tickets for the game are $15, and $5 from every ticket purchased through the chapter or through the event web site (royalshockeyevents.com/psu) will be donated to THON.
The chapter will also host a dinner at the Sovereign Center, that is open to alumni, students, and the general public. Doors will open at 5:00 p.m. and the dinner includes chicken parmesan, baked spaghetti, mixed vegetables, Caesar salad, breadsticks, dessert, and beverages. Tickets for both the dinner and the game are $30, with $10 donated to THON.
Reading Royals season ticket holders who would like to attend the dinner can do so for $15. This offer is only valid for Royals ticket holders; dinner tickets must be purchased through the event web site for the proceeds to be donated to THON.
In addition, a shuttle will run from Penn State Berks to the Sovereign Center, and the cost is $3 per. The shuttle will be located in the commuter lot off Broadcasting and Harper Roads. St. Joseph Medical Center is the sponsor of the shuttle from the campus to the Royals game.
The Reading Royals will wear special Penn State football-themed jerseys. These one-of-a-kind game-worn jerseys will be autographed by the players wearing them and auctioned off following the game, with a portion of the proceeds also benefiting THON.
To keep with the Penn State tradition, the Royals have received special permission from the ECHL to wear jerseys that do not include nameplates on the back, and the Royals logo will be in the traditional bowl game patch location.
