SILVER SPRING TWP.— Pop star Carly Rae Jepsen will make a special acoustic appearance at Cumberland Valley High School’s Mini Thon benefit concert on Aug. 1.

Jepsen — best known for her 2012 hit “Call Me Maybe” — will join the bands Greater Than Me and My Hero Zero on stage in the high school’s performing arts center for a 1:30 p.m. performance to raise funds for the 2014 Mini-Thon campaign.

Mini-Thon Overall Chairpersons Amy Elgin, Katie Maronic and Ethan Ray said the school hopes to raise $155,000 for the Four Diamonds Fund and its fight against pediatric cancer in 2014.

The Four Diamonds Fund aids patients at Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital by offsetting costs of treatment not covered by insurance. It also pays for expenses that may disrupt the welfare of the child (such as car repairs, rent and household utilities), supports the medical team that cares for the children and funds pediatric cancer research.

CV students, staff and family members can purchase tickets from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on July 29 with a valid school identification card or driver’s license. Remaining tickets will be available to the general public between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on July 30 and 31 at the high school’s box office in the Eagle Lobby. Tickets cost $20 and can be purchased with cash or checks made payable to Cumberland Valley mini-THON.

Cumberland Valley High School’s 2013 Mini-Thon campaign involved 1,200 dancers and raised $151,457.13 in just 12 hours, surpassing their $120,000 goal.

Everyone in the Cumberland Valley or Harrisburg area should check out this show!  It’s all FTK!
