Penn State Brandywine’s fifth annual  “A Night with the Pride” Beef ‘n’ Beverage event on February 22, raised nearly $4,300 to support student athletics and Global Programs.

The event, which took place at the Ballrooms at Boothwyn, included dinner, a drawing for more than 40 baskets filled with goodies and gift certificates and entertainment for the more than 160 attendees. Three lucky attendees went home with Flyers tickets, Phillies tickets and a weekend at an Avalon beach house.

“We always have a wonderful time planning this event,” said committee members Gail Wray and Theresa Walls. “We could not have thrown such a successful event without the contributions from the campus community as well as local businesses that want to support Brandywine Athletics and Global Programs. It’s such a wonderful event that brings together the whole Brandywine family in an evening filled with fun, dancing and excitement.”

Proceeds benefit the Tiz Griffith Intercollegiate Athletic Fund and the campus’ Global Programs Scholarship Fund, directly assisting Brandywine’s international travelers.
