For the 10th Annual St. Catherine Laboure Four Diamonds Mini-THON

We are preparing for our 10th Annual Mini-THON at St. Catherine Laboure.  The Four Diamonds Fund is unique to The Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital. Since 1972, the Fund has served more than 4,000 families, primarily from the central Pennsylvania area, but also from surrounding states. Approximately 100 new families a year become Four Diamonds families. Everything they do is For The Kids (FTK)!! Children, who are part of our school and parish, have been among them.


We encourage students to sign up and raise funds individually for this years’ MiniTHON. We hope to make it interesting and fun and the student raising the most money will receive a prize (TBD).  The setup is fairly easy to complete. The students would register by clicking on the Register Now button on our DonorDrive page; the link is below:

Student Fundraising Link 2022

Once registered, the students will be provided with the option to set up a fundraising page. The page itself is ready to go as it is after choosing to set up the fundraiser and selecting their goal; the students can add to it (words, picture) to customize it for their fundraising efforts. If there are any questions, please let Natalie Barbush ( know. Once completed, they will be able to share their link.


We have $1425.00 so far in our Donor Drive that is being applied to our Mini-THON !!  We were one of the Push Week Power Hour Winners in December and a $100  donation was made courtesy of a Four Diamonds sponsor – The Painter’s Daughter – Beth Peiffer. The $1000 donation was made from another Four Diamonds sponsor called Mile One/Heritage Toyota. We think we are off to a great start!!


Thank you and your students for supporting this important cause and event. We have had a few students over the years impacted by pediatric cancer; these families can attest to the invaluable assistance the Four Diamonds provides!! This is our 10th year for the MiniTHON and we hope it will continue!!
