Diamonds Over Georgia is an annual gala and year round fundraising effort to support pediatric cancer. The annual gala was conceived by members of the Atlanta Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association as a way for alumni to continue to support pediatric cancer maintain a connection with THON (Penn State Dance Marathon) and Four Diamonds after graduation.
Because cancer doesn't care what school you went to or where you live - our events are open to everyone!
In 2020, Diamonds Over Georgia was established as a 501(c)3 charity with our primary benefactor being the Four Diamonds organization. The mission of Four Diamonds is to conquer childhood cancer by assisting children treated at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital and their families through superior care, comprehensive support, and innovative research. Four Diamonds offsets the cost of treatment that insurance does not cover and expenses that may disrupt the child's welfare, like car repairs, rent, or household utilities. They also support the medical team that cares for the children and subsidizes pediatric cancer research through startup grants and the Four Diamonds Pediatric Cancer Research Institute. For more information on this amazing organization, please visit Four Diamonds.
Additionally, part of the proceeds are donated to CURE Childhood Cancer in Atlanta. CURE is dedicated to conquering childhood cancer through targeted research and supporting patients and their families. For more information visit CURE Childhood Cancer
