The Penn State New Kensington Alumni Society sponsors a variety of events throughout the year. In the fall we cheer on the Nittany Lions at a TV Football Party, which features a Big 10 opponent. In the spring we raise funds for our scholarship at our Bowlathon. In the summer, it’s our Alumni Golf Scramble that helps grow the endowment.

The 18th annual Alumni Golf Scramble at 12:30 p.m., Monday, Aug. 7, at Arnold Palmer's Latrobe Country Club. The shotgun-start tournament is open to alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff and friends of Penn State. The $200 entry fee includes green fee, cart, lunch, dinner, refreshments and awards.

Various sponsorship opportunities are available, ranging from a $10,000 tournament sponsor to a $200 tee sponsor. All sponsors will get recognition at a tee box, in the event program, and on the Penn State New Kensington website.

For more information on the golf outing, call 724-334-6057 or email Kary Coleman, director of development and alumni relations.
