Tickets Available for Third Annual Hope Gala

Tickets for the third annual Hope Gala are now available through the New York City chapter of the Penn State Alumni Association. The THON benefit will be held Friday January 21, 2011 at 7:30 pm in Capitale, a restaurant on the Lower East Side.

Penn State quarterback coach Jay Paterno will host the event (and if you purchase a VIP ticket you get to hang out with him at a private cocktail hour). The Dylan Moser family will also speak at the event. Dylan’s family was adopted by Delta Zeta and Delta Tau Delta.

There will also be a silent auction featuring items like a one week stay in Mexico, tickets to an SNL broadcast, and plenty of autographed Joe Paterno memorabilia. Of course there will also be dinner, drinks, and dancing.

Here’s how the ticket prices break down:

You can also donate directly to the Hope Gala. Check out the ticket pages for information on how much each is tax deductible.

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
