The Penn State Wilkes-Barre Student Government Association (SGA) is holding its annual haunted forest fundraiser for children with pediatric cancer at the Hershey Medical Center. The SGA has raised more than $100,000 for the Four Diamonds Fund since 1998 through events such as the haunted forest, canning weekends, basket raffles and dodge-ball tournaments. The Four Diamonds Fund was established to assist children being treated for cancer at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital. The haunted forest will be conducted tonight, Friday and Saturday and Oct. 24, 25 and 26. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the last show starts at 10:40 p.m. Cost is $7 per person and groups of 10 or more are $5 each. There will also be a special safe trick or treating show for children younger than eight years old from 2-4 p.m. on Oct. 27. Cost is $3 per child. For more information email hauntedforest@psu.edu or contact Jackie Warnick-Piatt, student activities coordinator, Penn State Wilkes-Barre, at jackiewp@psu.edu or 570-675-9284.
