Penn State Night A Real Special Event
Officials planning the Greater Scranton Chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association's Penn State Night promise that the event will be a "must go night" for true blue and white Nittany Lions football fans.
Chapter President Michael Rescigno, said a raffle and auction items will include some tickets to Penn State football games, including the September 8th Notre Dame and the October 27th Ohio State games at Penn State. Featured speakers are Larry Johnson, defensive line coach, and Dick Anderson, offensive line coach, for Nittany Lions Football.
"We'll be raffling off two Penn State season tickets for five dollars a chance," said Mr. Rescigno. There is no limit to the number of raffle tickets one can buy. Further," he said, "we are auctioning at least two Penn State packages that night. Each package will contain two tickets to either the Notre Dame game or the Ohio State game in addition to other Penn State items. This will be a live auction," added Mr. Rescigno, "so one has to be at the Dinner to participate. We?re excited because most Nittany Lion football fans have given up hope of getting tickets for these big games."
In addition to hearing about Nittany Lion Football, the event will honor Mrs. Maryla Peters Scranton as Alumna of the Year.
Tickets for Penn State Night, scheduled for Wednesday, May 16th at Genetti Manor, Dickson City are available for $35.00. Tickets can now be purchased online with a credit card at www.psualum.com/chapter/scranton or from any board member.
