Alumni Zone Homecoming event to feature Penn State celebrities Oct. 12

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Before the Homecoming game against Michigan on Oct. 12, alumni and friends are invited to tailgate during the pre-game hours by rounding up the whole family and heading over to the Alumni Zone tailgate in the Indoor Multi-Sport Facility, near the Bryce Jordan Center.

Join hundreds of other alumni and fans, and enjoy a complete tailgate buffet, with old favorites like grilled stickies and Berkey Creamery ice cream, along with cold beer, wine and soft drinks. Meet some Penn State celebrities — including head coaches Guy Gadowsky (men’s hockey), Russ Rose (women’s volleyball), Mark Pavlik (men’s volleyball) and Char Morett (field hockey); Penn State and NBA basketball star and this year’s grand marshal, John Amaechi, Class of 1994; and star quarterback Wally Richardson, Class of 1996. Also featured are free T-shirts, games, prizes and entertainment by the Alumni Blue Band, alumni majorettes and alumni Lionettes.

The Alumni Zone fun kicks off before the game at 11 a.m. Costs are $37 for Alumni Association members, $50 for nonmembers and $15 for children (5 and younger).
