HERSHEY, Pa. (WHTM) — Play For The Kids was launched today by Four Diamonds at Penn State Health Children’s Hospital, a nonprofit gift fund.
Play For The Kids is the organization’s new fundraising program that unites Four Diamonds supporters nationwide to continue the fight against childhood cancer.
