LOCAL THON EVENT A BIG SUCCESS

Local alumni host a great event for the kids!

Thanks to all of you who came out Saturday, February 12th for making this event such a success. In the shadow of the iconic Hollywood sign with the lights of LA as a backdrop, everyone enjoyed the Penn State camaraderie, great food and drinks (including Tastycakes and Rolling Rock), and musical entertainment by Devon Werkheiser and Molly McCook. And best of all, we will be sending a check to the Penn State Dance Marathon to benefit the Four Diamonds Fund for $1,440. Pictures of the event are posted at:

Based on the enthusiastic support, we want to start planning a bigger and better event for next year. A number of people expressed interest in working on this, so please contact us if you would like to get involved. And look for more upcoming social events, too. Let’s make the LA alumni chapter the best and show LA that We Are….Penn State.

In case you missed the news -  the Dance Marathon was held the weekend of February 18th and raised $9.5 million!!! Go State, Beat Cancer.

For the Kids,

Valerie, Gary, Erica and Landon
