Talbot Thon is Just Around the Corner

Gracie Hengelsberg

The sixth annual Talbot Thon is just under two months away, and the students in charge are more than prepared. This year, Talbot Thon falls on March 23, and there are many exciting new aspects to get excited about. The fundraising goal this year is $60,000, while last year we were able to raise $55,000. The top fundraising team’s prize is a party bus ride and dinner downtown, and the top fundraising individual will win a Macbook. 

Along with the prizes for top fundraisers, there are a lot of exciting raffle prizes such as and a new iPhone 11 and a set of Airpod Pros. Additionally, Thon this year features six different food trucks, including South Side BBQ, BRGR, Franctuary, Las Chicas, Gyros N’at, and the Pittsburgh Pierogi Truck. Before the event, there will be multiple fundraising opportunities for the school, such as a 3 on 3 basketball game and a pajama day with donations.

Registration opens February 3rd, and it costs $15 per person to register; more info about registration will be announced at a later date. For now, follow the HHS Student Council Twitter account for periodic updates.
