Since 2008, our THON Alumni Committee (formerly known as Pittsburgh DMAIG) has raised nearly $240,000 for THON and the Four Diamonds Fund. WE ARE proud to support this dedicated group of Alumni volunteers and their commitment to fighting pediatric cancer.

Events throughout the year keep THON's mission alive and well while forming lasting relationships with Pittsburgh-area Alumni and businesses. Past events include:

  • PSU Day at PNC Park
  • PSU Night with the Pens
  • Fundraising sales with Sarris Candies and Pop Envy Gourmet Popcorn
  • Scaring Away Pediatric Cancer at Kennywood's Phantom Fright Nights
  • Spinning For A Cure with Steel Revolution Cycling Studio
  • A Virtual Mixology session with DiAnnoia's Eatery
  • Goat Yoga at Tiny Trax Farm

Our annual Blue White Ball: 4 Diamonds, 3 Rivers, 1 Dream has become Pittsburgh's premier THON fundraising event, providing doctors, patients, and families at the Penn State Children’s Hospital in Hershey, PA with hope for a cure. The ball features an open bar, dinner and dancing in addition to raffles, an extensive silent auction, and special honored guest speakers in some of Pittsburgh's coolest event spaces such as Acrisure Stadium, J. Verno Studios, The Children's Museum of Pittsburgh, and The Grand Hall At The Priory.

The mission of the Four Diamonds Fund is to conquer childhood cancer by assisting children and their families through superior care, comprehensive support, and innovative research, and THON has contributed nearly $220 million to the fight to date.
