About the Blue White Ball

The Blue White Ball was founded in 2008 by two Pittsburgh-area Penn State Alumnae who wanted a way to support THON's mission & purpose in our local community. Since then, it has evolved into Pittsburgh’s premier THON fundraising event, welcoming 150-200 guests annually for dinner, drinks, and dancing along with special honored guest speakers to highlight the ways we can directly impact the lives of countless families in Hershey. Guests support our efforts throughout the evening by participating in featured raffles and our extensive silent auction, creating a spectacular evening of fun, fellowship, and philanthropy. The Ball has contributed nearly $170,000 to the fight for a cure to date. After raising a record $20,000 For The Kids in 2022, we're looking forward to an even better event in 2023 thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, in-kind donors, guests, volunteers, and community!
