The annual Hershey High School (HHS) Mini Thon fall fest was held on October 31, 2017.

This event was held to support the Four Diamonds charitable organization. According to the Four Diamonds, the objective of the organization is to “conquer childhood cancer” by providing medical care, financial and emotional support, and funding pediatric cancer research.

Elizabeth Blosky, HHS Mini Thon advisor and biology teacher, said, “all proceeds of fall fest will go directly to Four Diamonds.”

The HHS fall fest had activities such as a spooky movies, a haunted hallway featuring dolls and frightening screams, a bake sale with a variety of treats, a trick or treat hallway, Nexus storytelling, and pumpkin painting.

“The Haunted Hallway was hard work,” said sophomore overall chair Claire Williams. The members of Mini Thon had to dress up in costumes such as dolls and zombies.

The HHS minithon also redecorated the hallway with spiderwebs, trees, fake blood, skulls, and more eerie objects.

Williams said, “Hard work is worth it because in the end it’s for the kids.”
