Dine with Lion Legends

Coming to Happy Valley for Blue White Weekend? Get the rare opportunity to dine with Penn State greats at the third-annual Penn's Civilians Fundraising Dinner and help a great cause.

If you're a Penn State fan, this is an event you can't miss. Past events featured Lion legends like Ki-Jana Carter, Kenny Jackson, O.J. McDuffie and Bobby Engram, Blair Thomas and many, many others. This year's event is expected to be the biggest and best yet.

What: Second Annual Penn's Civilians Dinner
Where: Friday, April 18, 6:00 pm
Where: The Penn Stater

The purpose of the event is not only to raise funds to support Penn's Civilians' programs, but to also create awareness of the organization and build positive relationships with community members.

This year Penn's Civilians will honor former Nittany Lion player and long-time defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky will be honored for his efforts with his charitable organization, The Second Mile.

Among the other PSU personalities expected to attend the dinner are Bruce Clark, Shane Conlan, Troy Drayton, John Greene, Shelly Hammonds, Kim Herring and Dennis Onkotz, to name just a few.

The event also features a silent auction highlighted by a wide array of one-of-a-kind PSU and sports collectibles.

Penn's Civilians was created by former Nittany Lion Rick Sayles in 2002 to provide academic and social support to urban youth. It began with a pilot program at Steelton Highspire High and has been growing with the help of the Penn State sports community. They currently provide programs in Harrisburg and State College, and organizers hope to bring Penn's Civilians to other communities throughout the state.

Tickets to this amazing event are $100. You can get more information by calling Curtis Johnson at 814-880-6069.
