Annual Spring Soiree to benefit student scholarships
Penn State Brandywine will host its annual Spring Soiree to bring together alumni, friends and community members for a night of dinner and dancing to raise money for student scholarships on Friday, March 23, at the Merion Cricket Club.
Live and silent auctions will feature vacation homes, authentic Richard-Ginori dinnerware from Italy (see below for more information and photos), Waterford Crystal, a beautiful selection of jewelry, Penn State football tickets as well as tickets to Phillies and Eagles games and a number of gift certificates and baskets for area restaurants and businesses.
CBS 3 traffic anchor Bob Kelly will guide guests through an evening of celebration that will help Brandywine students as they strive to earn a world-class, affordable Penn State education. Proceeds will benefit the Student Scholarship Fund. Last year's event raised $30,000.
The Soiree will feature a cocktail buffet reception and live music from 7 to 11 p.m. Admission to the event is $85 per person.
A committee of Penn State alumni, friends and community members has made this event possible: Cathy Judge Cardillo, Sandra Ford ’78, Eleanor Parsons, Joanne Sharp
’05, Gail Unangst and Kathy Yanoshak.
The Merion Cricket Club is located at 325 Montgomery Avenue in Haverford.
