Chancellor's Gala

NEW ON-CAMPUS VENUE:
ATHLETICS CENTER

 

With a new on-campus venue, the fourth annual Chancellor's Gala is set for Friday, Sept. 28, in the campus Athletics Center.

Hosted by the campus Advisory Board, the event brings together founders, donors, alumni, students, faculty and staff, and features dinner and dancing, silent auction, mystery box sale and raffle items. Last year the gala, which is a part of the University-wide fundraising effort, "For the Future: The Campaign for Penn State Students," brought in more than $10,000, a new record for the three-year-old event. The total represented a 25 percent increase over the previous year.

The proceeds benefit the Advisory Board's endowed trustee scholarship. In addition to fundraising, the Chancellor's Gala serves as a platform for the campus to honor its special donors with the "Corporate/Foundation Partner of the Year" award and “Arch Society” inductions.

For more information, contact Tina Sluss at 724-334-6056 or tms57@psu.edu.
