Penn College’s second annual “Man-i-Cures” fundraiser, in which fraternity brothers paint fingernails for a cause, resulted in $642 in contributions to be shared by six charities. For a $5 donation during the two-day event, each “salon” patron could pick his or her color based on the chosen charity: purple for suicide prevention, for which $172 was raised; pink for breast cancer prevention, $127; teal for sexual assault awareness, $117; blue for Autism Speaks, $82; gold for the THON fight against pediatric cancer, $82; red for AIDS Resource, $62. Eyewitness News reporter Valerie Tysanner visited the Bush Campus Center for a piece that premiered Tuesday evening and was aired several more times throughout the news cycle.
