Friday evening: Chancellor's Gala with emcee Mark Pavlik

September 24, 2012

Dinner, dancing and a silent auction will highlight Penn State New Kensington's fourth annual Chancellor's Gala, set for 6 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 28, in the campus’ Athletics Center. Mark Pavlik, head coach of the men’s volleyball team at Penn State, will serve as the master of ceremonies, and Dr. Zoot, a Pittsburgh swing band, will provide the musical entertainment. The cost is $100. All proceeds benefit the campus' Advisory Board Trustee Scholarship, which is a part of the University-wide fundraising effort, "For the Future: The Campaign for Penn State Students." The theme of the gala is "Blue and White Lions Night," and the event will bring together founders, donors, alumni, students, faculty and staff, and features a silent auction, a mystery box sale and raffle items. While the contents of the mystery box cannot be revealed, the auction items include two tickets to the Dec. 21 Penguins ice hockey game against the Winnipeg Jets at the Consol Energy Center, two tickets to the Oct. 24 Steelers game versus the Washington Redskins at Heinz Field, a football signed by Penn State coach Bill O’Brien, and a golf package. For those who cannot make the gala, a special auction feature, "Buy it Now," allows Penn Staters and friends from around the world to purchase items prior to the auction at a predetermined price.
