Penn State pageant raises money for Relay for Life
By: Lauren Hensley
STATE COLLEGE, Pa.-- Wednesday night, six Penn State men competed for the title Mr. Think Pink. It is a pageant all to raise money for Relay for Life. Pageant contestants strutted their stuff in formal wear, sports attire and had to showcase a talent. Tickets cost $7 and all the money goes towards Relay for Life and the American Cancer Society. Relay for Life is a 24-hour walk-a-thon.
Events like this obviously raise a lot of money. We try and have fundraisers like this all throughout the year and every little effort helps. Last year we raised $137,000 and this year we are hoping to break that and our real goal this year is to raise $150,000, Courtney Zeuner, with Relay for Life, said.
Penn State University's Relay for Life will take place April 5-6. Jesse Marks walked away the big winner, being named Mr. Think Pink.
