One of the best things about Penn State is its reputation for passionate and philanthropic students. This year’s inaugural Lionspire event exemplifies these qualities by raffling signed prints of Matthew Rice’s “Undefeated” painting, which commemorated the 1994 Rose Bowl team, to benefit the Blu Art Foundation. Blu Art seeks to give young, disadvantaged, aspiring artists opportunities that many of them would never have otherwise. The foundation provides space, materials, mentors, education and even showcases for these kids.
Tickets will be available at the signings and there will be a drawing of the winner of the 50/50 raffle immediately after the game at the student section gate. You don’t even need to be there to win! So this weekend buy a copy of the print or a 50/50 ticket and support a great cause.
