Penn State Brandywine’s fifth annual “A Night with the Pride” Beef 'n’ Beverage event will be held at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 22, at the Ballrooms at Boothwyn. Funds raised at the event will directly support Brandywine student athletes.

The Beef 'n’ Beverage is open to the public and will feature entertainment, dinner and a drawing for more than 40 baskets filled with prizes and gift certificates. Guests could win Philadelphia Flyers tickets, Philadelphia Phillies club box tickets and a shore rental in Avalon, N.J. Last year’s event raised more than $7,000 and proceeds benefit the Tiz Griffith Intercollegiate Athletic Fund. A portion of the proceeds will also benefit the campus Global Programs Scholarship Fund, directly assisting Brandywine’s international travelers.

Admission is $25 and will include dinner, beverages and entertainment for the evening.
