Wyoming Area Key Club will host an all-night dance-a-thon Warrior Rave in the Wyoming Area gymnasium from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. on January 26-27.

The event will benefit Eric Speicher, an 8th grader at Wyoming Area who has been diagnosed with a brain tumor called, ependymoma.

This is a type of malignant brain tumor that has reoccurred requiring several surgeries and continued treatments.

Net proceeds from the dance marathon will go to Eric and his family to help defray the cost of medical treatments and other expenses.

The Warrior Rave is open to all Wyoming Area students in grades 7 to 12. Tickets will be on sale during lunch periods – admission is $20, which includes a T-shirt.

Rules must be signed by the student and parents to attend.

To help with the cost of T-shirts, refreshments, door prizes etc. the Key Club is asking local businesses to make donations to this cause.

Any amount donated is welcome. All donors of $50 or more will be listed on a donor board displayed at the event. Donors of $100 or more will be listed on the back of the T-shirt given to every event attendee.

If a donor gives $250 or more, an hour of the event will be dedicated to that specific business — during that hour special recognition will be given to that business.

Businesses or individuals who wish to donate to this event can send money to Wyoming Area Key Club at Wyoming Area High School, 20 Memorial Street, Exeter PA 18643. Donations can also be picked up by contacting Key Club advisor Juel Anne Klepadlo, at (570) 430-1470; Leo Skoronski, Key Club President, at (570) 362-2619 or emailing Wyoming Area Key Club atwyomingareakeyclub@gmail.com.

In order for the shirts to be completed in time for the event donations must be received by January 11. Donations after January 11 will certainly be appreciated, but will not be able to have names on the T-shirts.
