50th Anniversary Gala

Penn State Brandywine will host its 50th Anniversary Gala at 6 p.m. on Friday, May 11. The 1960s-themed, black-tie-optional evening of food and entertainment will be held in the campus’ new Student Union. Proceeds will benefit Brandywine’s emergency scholarship fund, which assists students who experience an unforeseen financial hardship.


The gala brings together faculty, staff, alumni, campus friends and community members for a night of celebration. The event is from 6 to 10 p.m. and is open to the public. It will feature dinner, live music, dancing and a silent auction.


This year, Brandywine will honor three outstanding individuals or organizations with the first presentation of the Lion’s Heart Awards.
