About The Bob Perks Fund

The Bob Perks Cancer Assistance Fund helps ease the financial burden of individuals and families in our community who are battling cancer by providing funding for basic necessities so their focus is on treatment and recovery.

Since our inception in 2006, the Bob Perks Fund Cancer Assistance Fund has raised and allocated over 2.5 million dollars to local cancer patients facing financial hardship in Blair, Centre, Clearfield, and Huntingdon Counties. In 2021, Mifflin and Juniata counties were added to the BPF service area. While the emotional strain of a potentially fatal disease is enormously stressful, it is totally overwhelming when a family is forced to decide between buying food or heating their home. This is where the Bob Perks Fund steps in, providing short-term financial assistance to cancer patients who are unable to pay for basic necessities such as rent, utilities, and food while they are undergoing cancer treatments.


The State Theatre needs your help to purchase a new Digital Projection System!

With the purchase and installation of a new projector, The State will have a new 4K, laser projection, and digital cinema sound processing system will give us the ability to screen major movie festival features, as well as independent and major studio live action and animation that is only distributed in the DCP (Digital Cinema Package) format.
