Dance-A-Thon at Monmouth University on April 4

Monmouth University’s Shadow PR Firm and Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) chapter will host its first “Monmouth Hawks Dance Together,” a six-hour dance-a-thon on Friday, on April 4, from 6 pm to midnight in Anacon Hall. The event will benefit The Valerie Fund Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at The Unterberg Children’s Hospital at Monmouth Medical Center.

The Valerie Fund is a not-for-profit organization that provides health care, including medical treatment, counseling and child development activities, for children with cancer and blood disorders.

Some of the activities at the event include:

  • Silent Auction with items such as a signed Carmelo Anthony jersey, gift card to Mosaic Salon and Spa, a 30 min rental to Rt. 72 Waverunner, and more.
  • DJ competition where participants can vote for their favorite DJ of the night.

  • 90s Hour featuring the best throwback hits.
