In early August 2021, PAMIC held its 114th Annual Convention at the Hotel Hershey. Catch pictures of the event on our homepage (please put the homepage here). It was great to see smiling faces and friendly greetings. However, the highlight of the night is what our members did to support the 4 Diamonds organization whose mission is to stamp out childhood cancers and develop treatments that do not endanger the lives of the children. Many of you are familiar with the 4 Diamonds through its affiliation with Penn State Thon. However, on the night of August 2, 2021 the representative of the 4 Diamonds made their case for giving to this cause including a heart wrenching video of the life of a young girl from the local area. This hit home for my wife and I because we personally knew this young lady from our neighborhood and school. My wife, Katy, taught her for 2-years while she was in Middle School. She passed away, not from her cancer, but from the harsh treatments she endured.
Our members donated over $25,000 that night surpassing all expectations. Thank you for caring and I know the money will go to a great cause!
