Baseball Game June 22 to Benefit Scholarship Fund at Penn State York
Friday, May 25, 2012
The York Revolution and the Lancaster Barnstormers baseball teams will face-off on Friday, June 22, at Sovereign Bank Stadium, York, Pa., and local Penn State fans will gather to enjoy a picnic, watch the game, and raise money for Penn State York’s Pay It Forward Scholarship. Fans, friends, family, alumni, and others are invited to join the group, beginning with a two-hour buffet catered by Maewyn’s Irish Pub and Restaurant at 5:45 p.m., with the game to follow at 6:30 p.m. Ticket includes the buffet, baseball game, and a T-shirt, all for $25 for adults and $13 for youth (4-10-years-old). Half of the ticket price goes to the Pay It Forward Scholarship Fund.
Youth tickets include a playground wristband.
Deadline to purchase tickets to be part of the fundraiser is June 8. Contact Susan Boyer, 717-227-0414 or firstname.lastname@example.org, with questions about the event and Colin Cameron, at 717-801-4498 or email@example.com, to purchase tickets. This event is sponsored by the Penn State Alumni Association, York County Chapter.
Pay it forward is a concept that dates to back to Benjamin Franklin in 1784. Pay it forward at Penn State York is this old concept revisited to create a new opportunity for alumni and friends to combine their efforts and change the lives of talented students. The Pay It Forward Scholarship places a high value on heritage, making it one of the most important considerations for students to receive support. A preference will be given to returning generations, immediate family members of alumni, as well as students who are first in their families to attend college.
For more information on this scholarship and how to contribute outside of attending the baseball fundraiser, contact Di Hershey or Iona Colon at the Penn State York Office of Development at 717-771-4127 or at firstname.lastname@example.org via e-mail.
