Hundreds of UNK students packed the house at the St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital Hollywood themed Up Til Dawn event on Oct. 11. Two-year-old Aiden, left, was diagnosed with a rare tumor known as an astroblastoma. His parents, Matt and Brooke Lukasiewicz of Kearney, said they attended the event to let students know how much their time means to patients at St. Jude. St. Jude is run 100 percent on donations, said Michelle Hermesch, right, a senior exercise science major from Plymouth. St. Jude is much more than a hospital, Matt said.

An estimated 700 students attended the event to write at least 50 letters each to family and friends asking for donations.
