Nursing Students Fundraiser for the Children’s Advocacy Center

Nursing Students Fundraiser for the Children’s Advocacy Center

Patricia Masters, a Penn State Worthington Scranton nursing student, came up with the idea of doing a fundraiser that would actually help a regional social service agency, for her final project.

Her project is now a reality and on August 7, the work that Ms. Masters and a handful of other Worthington Scranton students has done, will come to fruition during a two-hour Happy Hour Fundraiser at Kildare’s in Scranton, benefitting The Children’s Advocacy Center, which provides a full range of services to children who are victims of abuse.

On August 7, from 7 to 9 p.m., Kildare’s will host the fundraiser featuring free drinks and appetizers for a fee of $20 being charged at the door, along with music provided free of charge by local disc jockey Deb Wilson. There will also be donated raffle prizes from area businesses and organizations for a 50-50 raffle, as well as special basket raffles.

Half of all the proceeds collected at the door, as well as all the money received from the baskets and the 50/50 raffles, will be donated to the Children's Advocacy Center.

The event, which is completely student-initiated and student-organized, is open to the public. Anyone interested in attending, or helping out by donating raffle/gift items is asked to contact Patricia Masters via email at
