VERMILLION, S.D. -- The Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity (PIKE) at the University of South Dakota will host its 19th annual Thursday Night Live philanthropy event on Nov. 12 to raise money that will benefit local children battling cancer.
It begins at 7 p.m. Thursday at Aalfs Auditorium in Slagle Hall. Admission is $5 prior to the event and can be purchased at the Muenster University Center. Thursday Night Live replicates the popular television show Saturday Night Live. The performance is open to all students, faculty and members of the Vermillion community.
USD PIKES have committed more than $25,000 to Cure Kid’s Cancer, PIKE’s exclusive charity partner. Funds raised benefit local children battling cancer at Sanford Children’s Hospital. Cure Kids Cancer is dedicated to finding life-saving treatments for pediatric cancer by raising funds and awareness for local children’s cancer centers.
“More than 100 college men have come together to make this event a success. We are honored to help Cure Kids Cancer and hundreds of local children as they fight for their lives,” said Nathan Christensen, a senior kinesiology and exercise science major from Pipestone, Minnesota.
