NEW KENSINGTON, Pa. — The Penn State New Kensington Alumni Society invites Penn State fans to the annual televised football game party and food drive on Saturday, Sept. 24, at the Elks Lodge on Sixth Street in Tarentum. Game time has not been determined.

The Nittany Lions take on the Michigan Wolverines in a Big Ten battle in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and the pregame reception begins an hour before kickoff. Refreshments are provided along with a cash bar.

“Penn State alumni in the Alle-Kiski Valley are invited to join us for food, drinks, friendship and a big Penn State victory party,” said John Spadaro, a member of the society’s board of directors. “We also will be accepting donations for our annual food drive. It's a great way to give back to the community.”

In conjunction with the football game, the alumni society is sponsoring a food drive. Penn State fans are encouraged to bring canned food and nonperishable items, such as paper products and infant/baby supplies, to the Elks Lodge. The society will donate the collected items to the Allegheny Valley Association of Churches Food Bank, which serves the local region.
