NYC Hope Gala Announces LaVar Arrington as Emcee

Last January, the New York City and Northern New Jersey chapters of the Penn State Alumni Association and the Dance Marathon Alumni Interest Group paired up to host the Hope Gala. The Hope Gala is a black tie optional dinner that helps raise money for the Penn State Dance Marathon (THON). Hosted at the legendary Capitale on Bowery Street, the $175/plate event will include a cocktail reception and silent auction in addition to a 3-course dinner. Last year, the event raised over $10,000 for THON.

This year the Gala has announced that former two-time All-American and three-time Pro-Bowl linebacker LaVar Arrington will be the Master of Ceremonies for the Gala. “Penn State has been a huge part of my life and I am so glad that I can give back by helping out with this event,” said Arrington. “THON is a Penn State tradition right up there with football and the Creamery.”

Tickets are still available for the event. Visit the Hope Gala website for more information.
