November 29th marked 100 days until the Cumberland Valley Mini-THON. In honor of the upcoming event, students wore blue to show their Mini-THON pride and games during lunch began. Penny wars concluded before Thanksgiving break and the selected spirit week days were groutfit day, pajama day, superhero vs. villain, and 80’s day. The Mini-THON rivalry basketball game with Cumberland Valley vs. Central Dauphin faculty took place on November 15th and was a huge success, with Cumberland Valley taking the victory.
“We are so glad that the Mini-THON rivalry game was successful and fun for students and staff. We wanted to create something new that would bring more attention to our cause and get more people involved,” Overall Kendyl Swank said.
With just 100 days until the special night, leadership and committee members are working extra hard during the winter months. Committee members are planning fundraising events, soliciting businesses, and canning on weekends. The leadership team spends the majority of the winter spent working on and perfecting the man pageant. Applications for Mr. Mini-THON came out November 27th and any senior male student is able to apply. In early December, leadership will carefully select applicants to compete in the Man Pageant.
The leadership team is also working on rehearsals for THON factor throughout December. The top contestants were selected and notified in mid November. Participants will have rehearsals throughout the month, and the event will take place the second week of January. Once that event is concluded, the Man Pageant planning and rehearsals will be in full swing.
“THON factor and Man Pageant are two huge events that attract a large crowd and are huge contributions towards the total so we have to make sure that everything runs smoothly” communications chair Bianca Correll said.
Be sure to show support for CV Mini-THON by attending these upcoming events and participating in spirit week! FTK!
